The Book of Exodus: Question by Question leads individual readers or study groups through modern exegetical commentary on Exodus, relying almost entirely on the Socratic method of questions and answers. This resource is divided into different sections based on individual stories or sayings by the various authors and editors of Exodus.
For each section, an introduction provides the basic information needed to read the biblical story in line with modern scholarship. Next, essential study questions are provided to help the reader wrestle with specific verses and theological contexts.
The answers at the back of the book should be consulted by readers after they have invested time in reflection and in writing down their own responses. Concluding remarks, at times extensive, are provided at the end of each section to orient readers preparing to move on to the next chapter of Exodus.
