By the time we have read through Exodus we have learned the basic vocabulary of the Gospel – words like blood, redeem, sacrifice, glory, law, tabernacle and passover are all here, part of the great drama in which God saves a people for himself. To study Exodus, therefore, is to come to the heart of the message of redemption, to see God as the Saviour of his people, caring for them and present with them as they journey from Egypt to Canaan, from the house of bondage to the land of promise. Join the journey now!

‘This study is a most helpful and interesting introduction to the book of Exodus. In style it meets Calvin’s standard of lucid brevity. In focus it shows the structure and meaning of the book as a whole. In theology it is reliable and orthodox. It also contains the rarest of features: excellent discussion questions. I recommend it highly.’
—W Robert Godfrey, Professor of Church History and President of Westminster Seminary, California
‘This is a fine introduction to the study of the Book of Exodus. It fits particularly well with those who have little knowledge of the exodus account and story. It will be particularly helpful in Bible study groups and in youth groups. The study questions at the end of each chapter will help to facilitate discussion of the issues raised in Exodus. I heartily recommend it as a starting place for the study of this important book of the Old Testament.’
—John D Currid, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
