A substantial commentary on the second book of the Bible. Hamilton . . . offers a work that is exegetical and theological. The book bares all the fruit of decades of study invested in the book of Exodus.

    This is one top of the line commentary for Exodus. Victor P. Hamilton is a highly respected theologian and distinguished OT scholar in the evangelical world. I found the book written in a clear and accessible style with some fascinating & exegetical study notes which really helped me to open up to the riches of the book of Exodus. I got this at a steal deal in this month's discount offer which made it even better.

    One of the best commentaries on Exodus I've used. Hamilton's translations are helpful (though sometimes a little wittier than necessary) and the "Grammatical and Lexical Notes" section ahead of the commentary in each chapter is particularly insightful. Pairs well with a good expositional commentary like the NAC volume.
