Enns easily navigates between historical background and theological significance. His insights make this a great resource for pastors and students. [Full Review]

Probably one of the stronger commentaries in the NIVAC series and probably the most versatile on the list (scholars to laymen can benefit from it). The format of the commentary is simple and easy to use. Each block of text is discussed in three sections: Original Meaning, Bridging Contexts, and Contemporary Significance. Being an “Application Commentary”, Enns certainly moves to the application of the Biblical text more than others on this list... [Full Review]

This volume also receives many accolades from a wide variety of experts. Tremper Longman calls this an “incredibly insightful theological study” of the book of Exodus and says, “This commentary is ideal for those preaching on Exodus, because he so thoughtfully explores the book’s trajectory toward the New Testament gospel.”

A good first option for preaching and teaching. One shortfall is the lack of content on 34:6-7 and its importance for OT theology.

Enns does a tremendous job showing how the OT points to Jesus. That focus comes across on every page of this work.

Enns' commentary is good. Indeed, I can see how this will be for many people a good first choice. It is scholarly yet practical. He does well at relating Exodus to the whole story of the Bible. Many people will be happy that Enns has taken many of Fretheim's insights and approached them from a more reformed perspective. But on a whole, this commentary often just made me go back to Fretheim. This is partly due to the layout of the “NIV Application Commentary” Series which I do not find so helpful.
