Stuart's commentary is outstanding (and I am a layman with no seminary training.) It started off a little slow for me but Stuart got me hooked! Accessible yet loaded with profound insights. Highly recommended.

Great pastoral commentary to be used for preaching and understanding Exodus. Stuart includes a solid amount of historical information. This is my first choice when going through Exodus.

Conservative, semi-technical. Stuart strikes an expert balance between commentary proper and scholastic footnoting. Engaging and erudite, the best commentary on Exodus.
I first discovered Douglas Stuart's work when I read his Old Testament Exegesis textbook. Some years later, I read his commentary on Hosea - Jonah and was very impressed. I had high expectations, therefore, when I obtained a copy of his recently published commentary on Exodus, and I was not disappointed. Stuart begins his work with a thirty page Introduction containing a very helpful emphasis on the theology of Exodus. He then moves directly into the text with a verse by verse examination of Exodus that extends approximately 750 pages. Stuart's comments on the biblical text are clear and readable. The more technical issues are relegated to the footnotes. This is now the first commentary on Exodus to which I turn. [Full Review]
