On Exploring Exodus

Brian S. Rosner and Paul R. Williamson (eds.), Exploring Exodus: Literary, Theological and Contemporary Approaches (Nottingham: Apollos, 2008), 234pp., ISBN 9781844743131.

This collection of essays on Exodus arises out of papers given at the 2007 Moore College School of Theology. The contributions I’ve read so far (about half of them) deal more with the ‘literary’ and ‘theological’ rather than the ‘contemporary’ aspects mentioned in the subtitle, but there is lots of good material, ranging from close analysis of particular passages to exploration of larger themes in the book as well as its place in biblical theology more generally.

IVP (UK) provide the introduction online which nicely summarises the content of each of the essays.
