"Victor Hamilton has produced an excellent commentary on the book of Exodus. It is clearly written as a useful reference for teachers, pastors, and students of the Bible. He provides his own translation and grammatical notes for each section, followed by an extended commentary that draws deeply on the best sources of a rich interpretive tradition. Evangelicals will find his references to related New Testament texts as well as contemporary comparisons to be helpful resources for teaching. This commentary is a valuable addition for anyone seeking to understand the foundational story of the emerging people of God in Scripture."--James K. Bruckner, professor of Old Testament, North Park Theological Seminary
"Victor Hamilton has given to us a full discussion of the archaeological backgrounds, alternative views, and the meaning of the book of Exodus. Students of the Word will be especially helped by his interpretation of the Decalogue and his grammatical and lexical notes on each section of the book of Exodus. This commentary will make a fine contribution to the growing number of excellent works on Exodus."--Walter C. Kaiser Jr., president emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Victor Hamilton's commentary on Exodus contains his own unique, detailed, and constructive translation and interpretations of the texts of Exodus fueled by a wide-ranging dialogue with a wealth of previous scholarship on the book. For Hamilton, Exodus is about the full range of God's relationship with God's people--everything from liberation and covenant making to rebellion and restoration--with the ultimate goal of God's dwelling in the midst of God's people, Israel. All along the way, Hamilton expertly guides readers into the ways in which the book of Exodus intersects with other Old Testament and New Testament texts, offering a rich feast of theologically fruitful insights."--Dennis Olson, Charles T. Haley Professor of Old Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary
"Hamilton offers a clear and concise commentary on the book of Exodus. Perhaps even more important than his interaction with the latest scholarship, he answers the questions that people actually ask when they read the text. While his treatment of alternative viewpoints is always fair, he offers his own mature reflection on each passage with clarity and wit. This is a very fine commentary."--Daniel I. Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College
"Expansive in its coverage, expertly attentive to the Hebrew text, wise in its judgments, and written in a straightforward style, Hamilton's commentary makes sometimes-difficult material accessible and richly rewarding to a variety of readers. The English-speaking world enjoys several good commentaries on Exodus, and this one will rightly take its place among 'best in class.'"--V. Philips Long, professor of Old Testament, Regent College
 "In an engaging style, Hamilton provides an interpretation of the text that is hermeneutically and theologically sound as well as nuanced. Though he has interacted with the best scholarship on Exodus and the ancient Near East, his explanation of the meaning of the text is consistently accessible. This is a valuable resource for students and pastors or anyone who wants to better understand this important book from a well-grounded, evangelical perspective."--Peter T. Vogt, professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary

"A substantial commentary on the second book of the Bible. Hamilton . . . offers a work that is exegetical and theological. The book bares all the fruit of decades of study invested in the book of Exodus."--R. Albert Mohler Jr., Preaching

"Hamilton is a brilliant OT scholar. That is clear from his long and influential teaching career and his prior writings. And there is no question that there are many truly impressive insights in his new Exodus commentary. Moreover, he provides novel translation suggestions and comments, as well as novel grammatical and/or lexical observations at many points that I find both well considered and stimulating. Not only so, but he has produced a lengthy and well-written commentary that is a pleasure to read. . . . He obviously loves the book of Exodus, seeks assiduously to bring out its message as he understands it, and takes very seriously its identity as the very word of the only true and living God. No reader of his commentary can doubt that he has spent endless hours with the text, thinking it through and seeking to understand every part of it. The commentary is also nicely laid out. . . . I am . . . delighted to own it, intend to consult it often, and am pleased to recommend it to scholars, students, and pastors whose Hebrew is strong and whose exegetical skills are active."--Douglas Stuart, Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament
