Highlight. Underline. Pray. . . . What Jesus did for Israel in the past, He will do for you today.
The Book of Exodus will have you swaying to the beat and dancing to the music.

Read or better yet, reread this book! Lessing’s alliterative, energy-infused style compels the readers to see their story in the story of Moses. . . . Like few others can, Lessing mines the depth and breadth of the text and delivers caches of precious gems for scholarly and “average” Christ-follower alike. . . .—Rev. Dr. Brian L. Friedrich, president, Concordia University, St. Paul, Minnesota

Dr. Lessing relates the Exodus events to the backstory of Genesis, highlights psalms that recall God’s saving acts in Exodus, and most importantly, reveals how Exodus anticipates Christ. Whether he’s explaining the ten plagues or the Ten Commandments, Dr. Lessing holds the reader’s attention throughout with dynamic prose. —Rev. Dr. Christopher Kennedy, senior pastor, Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, School, and Child Care, San Antonio, Texas

Dr. Lessing gifts the Church with a refreshing review of Exodus that is creative and intensely interesting. He handles this second book of Scripture with a pastor’s heart and a biblical scholar’s expertise. Those who read his book will gain new insights into and have a greater familiarity with, Exodus.—Dr. Walter Maier III, professor of exegetical theology, Concordia Theological Seminary Fort Wayne, Indiana
