9781587433467: Exodus (Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible)

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.

From the Inside Flap:

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 Wills, Christian 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, CSA, The 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 Marshall, Expository 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, SJ, Catholic 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."
--Ched Spellman, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society|Thomas Joseph White, OP (DPhil, Oxford University) is director of the Thomistic Institute and associate professor of systematic theology at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC. He is the author of several books and was appointed a member of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas in 2011.

From the Back Cover:

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Exodus, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

Praise for Exodus in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"Thomas Aquinas left us no commentary on Exodus. But Thomas Joseph White succeeds in giving us a sense of what one from his hand might look like today."
--Bruce D. Marshall, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

"White's reading of Exodus tackles head-on the peculiarly modern conceit that all that stands between the reader of scripture and wise reading is a lack of knowledge--a deficiency of information. Surely, say White and the Catholic tradition to which he hereby contributes, as readers we typically lack the moral formation to see clearly the text and its truths. As such, we take a journey in tandem with the Israelites: from darkness to light and from slavery in Egypt to life-giving service (and understanding) under God's law. Drawing deeply on the fourfold sense of scripture in dialogue with Aquinas and many other serious theological voices, this commentary will strengthen and challenge all readers in pursuit of the God to whom the book of Exodus bears witness."
--Richard S. Briggs, Cranmer Hall, St. John's College, Durham University

"In his introduction to this extraordinary commentary and reflection on Exodus, Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP, writes that 'the classical Catholic approach to the moral law on Exodus is in many ways convergent with Judaism.' Thus I can now better understand why Maimonides (who so greatly influenced Thomas Aquinas, Fr. White's auctoritas) taught that Jews like me may learn Torah with Christians like Fr. White, who accept the Torah as divine revelation. In addition to that theological commonality (with differences to be sure), I very much identify with Fr. White's philosophically informed way of reading the Torah."
--Rabbi David Novak, University of Toronto
