Item description for Exodus (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by Terence E. Fretheim...

Overview
This new volume in the helpful Interpretation series competently steers preachers and teachers through theological and literary difficulties in the second book of Moses. Fretheim begins by reviewing issues of faith and history, drawing out ways in which the Hebrew story of redemption can be applied to modern Christian experience. In his commentary, he pays special attention to the significance of the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, the relationship between law and narrative, and the shaping of literature by liturgy.

Publishers Description

The introduction to this book recognizes Exodus as a Christian book, although it respects its pre-Christian roots in the Hebrew Bible. The commentary then moves in a straightforward manner to review issues of faith and history, the critical and theological tasks of a commentary, and other leading theological concerns. Terence Fretheim gives special treatment to the significance of the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, the relationship between law and narrative, and the shaping of literature by liturgy.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exodus (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?

Helpful, But Has Serious Flaws  Sep 15, 2009
I have used this commentary by Fretheim while preaching through Exodus. It is decent because it is short and to the point, and not exceedingly difficult to read or make sense of. I especially enjoyed the opening/introduction, as well as Fretheim's emphasis on creation parallels in the Exodus account. For example, in the plague section, he writes, "God uses creation to achieve redemption" (p. 138). Those types of comments are helpful; there are good parts of the commentary to be sure.

However, Fretheim has some troublesome theology which shows up in this commentary. He believes that God changes, grows, and learns right along with Moses. Fretheim: "God adjusts to new developments;" God's foreknowledge is less than absolute; "Future events may necessitate a change in the divine way into the future;" "God does not finally know;" "The God of Israel is revealed as one who is open to change" (pp. 65-77, 287). There are more examples, but reader beware: While the text of Exodus portrays a faithful, omnipotent, and omniscient God, Fretheim neuters him down to a dialogue partner with Moses and Aaron.

In summary, the commentary has been somewhat helpful to me, but for those who cannot stomach open theism - they will probably want to pass on the commentary and go for commentaries by Peter Enns or Brevard Childs instead.
 
Good , balanced and insightful  Aug 3, 2009
My review is not one of having read the entire book page for page, but more along the lines of having used it for certain passages I was working through and/or for background.

Fretheim does a really good job of placing the stories in literary context, with an overview to understanding the general sense of the passages. Given that there isn't that enough space to devote to an in depth analysis, this is probably the best approach one could hope for. He does occasionally highlight key words if needed , but the commentary is aimed at students comprehending the grand themes or underlying threads for the book of Exodus. Like an onion there certainly are layers upon layers to discover, but most readers can go back later to visit the depths after appreciating the grand vista's . The author's strength then is in this first approach.

I found the writing style to be clear and authentic; he gives praise and reference to outside sources when writing. Also the author was not afraid to admit that sometimes the passage is hard to understand. If there is a divergence of opinion, he gives a fair review and outline to the various positions. Good footnotes and the necessary references are included for research.

Overall one of the better commentaries out for the book of Exodus. Given that there isn't a lot of real choice out there for this important book, I would recommend it as a very wise buy.

 
Great Scholars sometimes are too great...  May 8, 2009
The book was a great read, but it was sometimes just REALLY dry and boring. There was little to no outside perspectives within the text, and I had trouble interacting with the text. However, Fretheim offered some great insights with the literary aspect of the texts which sometimes challenged me and other readers. If you are looking for a pretty good commentary that focuses on the literary elements of Exodus, this is a great start. Be wary that his scholarship sometimes overrides the enjoyment of reading the text.
