Explaining God's Actions in the Exodus Plagues

Publishers Description
The story of the Exodus from Egypt is of fundamental importance, both in the Old Testament and beyond. However, it also contains issues that are theologically problematic for many readers, especially concerning the actions of God. Why does God send a series of devastating plagues on Egypt? How do we understand the hardening of Pharaoh's heart? What do the answers to these questions say about the character of God?This study addresses these questions, taking into account the complex interaction of the presuppositions of faith and responsible textual interpretation. The approach is narrative theological and canonical paying attention to such factors as speaker, addressee, purpose, and reception, a picture is built up of the different and developing relationships between God, Pharaoh, and Moses. This complex interaction provides a way to read and understand the wider plagues story, including the plagues and hardening of the heart within it. The picture that emerges is challenging rather than comfortable a God who is responsive, speaking and acting to confront others to make the appropriate response to him.

Reviews - What do customers think about God, Pharaoh and Moses: Explaining God's Actions in the Exodus Plagues (Paternoster Biblical Monographs)?

A close reading of an important text  Mar 14, 2009
In this book, William Ford moves through a very close reading of the plagues narrative in Exodus with an eye to the portrayal of God's actions. He moves very methodically, often commenting on single words, but he writes very well, so the book is not boring. I so enjoyed the prose that I couldn't believe it is a revised version of doctoral dissertation. Throughout, Ford shows that a proper understanding of the text rests in a patient, careful reading rather than moving too quickly from text to systematic formulation. The case of YHWH "hardening" Pharaoh's heart is case in point. When so many move from textual instance to a normative description, Ford shows what the hardening actually does in the text.

I highly recommend this work to anyone with questions about the plagues narrative or the issue of hardening. It is worth reading as an example of good exegesis and good writing. But the people who should read it the most are Christians who tend to neglect the Old Testament or anyone who believes the lie that the God of the Old Testament is a savage, tribal god of Israelites. Read this book and better know YHWH as revealed in this particular story.
