Exodus recounts the origins of ancient Israel, but it is also a book of religious symbols. How should it be interpreted, especially in light of modern historical-critical study? In this addition to an acclaimed series, a respected scholar offers a theological reading of Exodus that highlights Aquinas’s interpretations of the text. As with other volumes in the series, this commentary is ideal for those called to ministry, serving as a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups.


Praise for the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

“[Robert] Barron’s achievement [in 2 Samuel] is crazy good. It would be trite and yet true to say that he writes well or that his commentary reads like a novel. . . . Barron’s reservoir of allusion is impressive, and his helpful references to history and literature are more than adornment. . . . He helps readers to see the broader story. His grasp of the complex development of David’s character is unsurpassed. . . . As a preacher under weekly pressure to cobble a sermon together, I find myself loving Barron and his book.”
Anne Blue WillsChristian Century

“[In 2 Samuel, Robert] Barron trains his theological eye on the account of the rise and fall of King David. He moves through the biblical book chapter by chapter, weaving together insights from the reconstruction of ancient history, biblical exegesis, and the Christian theological tradition. . . . It is clear that Barron knows this biblical book quite well. He is also well acquainted with the history of its interpretation. This study is a fine example of postcritical doctrinal biblical interpretation.”
Dianne Bergant, CSAThe Bible Today

“The series in which [Luke] appears shows what is gained when biblical commentaries are written by those who are expert in the related field of theology. In this case [David Lyle Jeffrey] is also learned not only in biblical studies but also (and primarily) in English literature. The resulting volume thus combines expert knowledge of the usual grist in the commentator’s mill with other helpful disciplines. . . . The outcome is a surprisingly comprehensive approach to the text which pays attention to matters of literary structure that are theologically relevant.”
I. Howard MarshallExpository Times

“I highly recommend to a wide ecumenical audience this elegant and religious theological commentary on Luke [by David Lyle Jeffrey]. It successfully reads the Lucan Gospel ‘in the company of the saints and faithful of all ages.'”
William S. Kurz, SJCatholic Biblical Quarterly

“[Christopher] Seitz’s commentary on Colossians represents the kind of contribution that the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible envisions: a refreshing interpretation of the letter that is informed by multiple interpretive horizons and also makes several suggestive advances in Pauline studies.”
