I’ve been preaching through Exodus the last six months or so, and have found the following commentaries and books to be helpful, each in its own way. The first part is the commentary list, the second is a list of books that contain parts of Exodus themes. Note: I’ve printed out and used hundreds (literally!) of articles from CBQ, JETS, JSOT, etc., but for obvious reasons I’m not going to list them. It is, however, more helpful at times to refer to specific journal articles than the commentaries. Just for fun, I did the “star” rating (5 being tops).
