The book of Exodus is about a journey: a journey out of Egypt, but more particularly a journey from a land where God's power, sovereignty and continuing interest in his people could be easily questioned, to a place where God dwelt in the midst of his people. Exodus describes God's power, his redemption of his people, his covenant requirements at Sinai, and the rules of his worship. John L. Mackay interacts with other scholars in either text or footnotes. In addition to exploring the meaning of the text he examines the chonology, authorship, composition and structure of Exodus. At the end of each section he provides a reflective comment.

If you're only going to buy one exegetical commentary on Exodus, make it this one.

Timothy Raymond, Credo Magazine

...outstanding and worthy of the high praise it recieves from other conservative Old Testament scholars.

Evangelical Times

... reliable and very readable commentary. Its style is accessible... a worthy addition to the Mentor series, and deserves a wide readership.


Professor Mackay has produced a strong commentary on the Book of Exodus. It is filled with excellent material for the pastor and the serious-minded Bible student. I especially appreciate the work on application that is normally so difficult to draw out of historical literature. I recommend this work highly. It is a valuable tool for the study of this most important period in Israel's history.

John Currid, Carl McMurray Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina

A tour de force of conservative evangelical exposition. Massively researched, painstakingly explained, theologically nuanced, reliably expounded, simply expressed and sensitivly applied; this volume will be of considerable value to all preachers and Bible students. For accessible and scholarly comment Mackay's work should quickly become the standard evangelical work on the Book of Exodus.
