Item description for Bound for Freedom: The Book of Exodus in Jewish and Christian Traditions by Goran Larsson...
Overview Bound for Freedom demonstrates that the book of Exodus presents a defining act of liberation not only in Judaism, but also in the Christian understanding of salvation history. That defining act, Larsson argues, takes place at Sinai with the giving of the Torah. Thus Exodus is not about unconditional freedom; rather, as the title of this book suggests, there is no freedom without boundaries. While doing justice to the historical setting of Exodus, Larsson stresses the history of theological interpretation, beginning with early Jewish interpretive traditions. The results illustrate both the vitality of those traditions and the spiritual and moral relevance of Exodus for today's reader.

Bound for Freedom: The Book of Exodus in Jewish and Christian Traditions Sep 3, 2007
I will be using this book in auditing Biblical first year at the Denver Catholic Biblical School. If the book is as exciting and people bound as the lecture from Dr Tim Gray, Executive Director of the School, it will be an interesting term.
