Reviews - What do customers think about Exodus. Volume I (Historical Commentary on the Old Testament)?
Very Thorough Commentary Oct 7, 2009
If you type in "Exodus commentary" into this site's search field, you won't find this book. That's too bad because this is one of the better commentaries on Exodus. It does not have the Christocentric perspective of Peter Enns' or Philip Ryken's, but as a verse-by-verse exposition, it is probably the best (even better than Douglas Stuart's very good commentary). You need at least a familiarity with Hebrew to follow the copious notes. Where Houtman is better than anything out there is the connections he makes to other OT texts. The downside is the price. Four volumes and this one, Vol. 1, is $70. Who thought that was a good idea? Again it's too bad because the only place this book will be found is in theological libraries. It should be on the shelf of every pastor who's preaching through Exodus (as well as Ryken's and Enns'...eh, and Douglas is good too).
