Item description for The God of Freedom and Life: A Commentary on the Book of Exodus by Stephen J. Binz...
Overview The journey of Exodus is the quest for freedom and life. It is the foundation of the Jewish faith and therefore at the heart of the Christian-Judaic heritage. Genuine freedom and fullness of life was the divinely inspired purpose of both Moses and Jesus; both called God's people to journey in faith. This commentary explores what to the Judaic tradition is the perennial event of Exodus, not just a historical but a continuing journey toward God and toward understanding themselves as God's people. It reveals a powerful story of passage from bondage to freedom, from death to life, and as such is the story of all God's people. Written with adult study groups and college-level classes in mind, this commentary on the NAB translation provides sound scholarship in a clear, readable style.
