What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Roberts and Wilson show how the exodus is more than a past event; it is a paradigm that shapes the storyline of the Bible and the life of the believer. The blend of rich biblical theology and beautiful writing will stir the affections of all who long for the Promised Land of the new heaven and new earth.”
Matthew S. Harmon, Professor of New Testament Studies, Grace College and Theological Seminary

“Alastair Roberts and Andrew Wilson have written a marvelous book. In 160 packed, lucid pages, they explore the exodus, one of the Bible’s main themes from Genesis to Revelation. The authors say that Scripture is musical, and their book will leave haunting echoes of exodus ringing in your soul. Echoes of Exodus won’t just teach you about exodus; it will teach you how to read. In studying it, you will learn to harmonize on the melody of God.”
Peter Leithart, President, Theopolis Institute; Contributing Editor, Touchstone Magazine

“I treasure books that bring the Scriptures to life, such as this one. This is what biblical theology should look like. This work by Roberts and Wilson taught me a great deal about the Bible and gave me a renewed appreciation for the exodus motif throughout God’s Word. Seminary professors, preachers, Bible study leaders, and others are going to love Echoes of Exodus.”
Mark Jones, Teaching Elder, Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church, Vancouver, British Columbia
