How to Read Exodus
Tremper Longman III
ISBN: 978-0-8308-3858-5

I have heard of Tremper Longman, but have never read anything that he has written, as far as I can recall. How To Read Exodus (from here on "Exodus") was a very good introduction to him as a writer as well as to Exodus.
Longman calls for his reader to read Exodus with a strategy. The strategy is to understand the literature, explore the historical background and theological theme of Exodus, and then seek to find its relevance to us. An admirable and right strategy, I think.
He continues by directing us to read Exodus as literature. This is not simply to deal with the genre of Exodus, but to deal with the shape and narrative structure of Exodus. "Exodus" presents the book of Exodus as showing us the presence of God, the covenant with the people, and the fact of servitude both to the Egyptians and to God.
"Exodus" then shows to us some of the historic context of Exodus by relating it to various law codes of its time. I like that fact that Longman does not fall into parallelomania (the mania in which inspiration is practically dismissed and the book made to be simply a product of its time), but demonstrates that there are similarities and also very pronounced differences between Exodus and other writings of its time. "Exodus" continues and deals with the event of the Exodus, its historical nature, and the significance of its having happened.
The most interesting section to me was the section in which Longman relates the story of the Exodus to his readers and then goes to show us how this relates to us as Christians. He brings out some very interesting parallels between Exodus events, the ministry of Christ, and other New Testament truths.

Format: Paperback
One of the greatest needs in preaching and teaching the Bible is an understanding of context. Most teachers know this but tend to limit their study of context to the immediate context of the passage they are teaching. There is a great need for material which helps teachers and preachers gain a good overview of an entire Bible book, since often there are themes that run throughout books that we otherwise miss. Tremper Longman's book, How to Read Exodus, fills just such a need, by pointing to the structure, themes and Christian connections in the book. I know Longman has written similar books on Genesis and Psalms, but I would love to see such a volume on every Old Testament book. This book was simply outstanding.

Longman begins by rooting the book of Exodus in the larger framework of the Penteteuch. He then moves to a literary consideration of the book, helping us understand Hebrew literary conventions and some emphases particular to Exodus. Longman then deals with key historical issues in Exodus, particularly the crossing of the Red Sea. The book then covers Exodus section by section, bringing out interesting insights into the book from each section. Longman concludes with a consideration of the value of Exodus for a Christian.

I will be referring to this book often whenever I teach from the book of Exodus. There were many insights I had never considered that Longman brought out through his broad view of Exodus.

This book is a most read for all Christians. Longman will take you into a travel trough your imagination to the world of the exodus in a simple yet deeply way. This Old Testament scholars is one of the best writers we have in the biblical scholarly world in English today. I read a lot of books of theology and I have found no one with the ability to communicate his knowledge so clearly as Tremper Logman III. Go for it your biblical understanding of the exodus will grow dramatically.

This book series by Tremper is very helpful for reading through the Bible. It is a great compliment to a traditional commentary. I also feel like these books equip me to study the bible without the help of other books rather than just being something I rely on.
