Exodus tells us what God is like, what it means to be the people of God and the great lengths God will go to keep his people close to him. But it is more than a powerful theological statement in its own right. It is also one pivotal chapter in a grand story that reaches its climax in the cross and the empty tomb, and that continues to reach across the centuries to us today.
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible - they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The NIV Application Commentary Series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. They explain not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.
"The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God."?
