From the Publisher:

1) 'Carol Meyer's Exodus is part of the New Cambridge Bible Commentary series ... she guides readers through modern scholarship as she examines the historical, social, literary, and religious dimensions.' -- Church Times

2) This commentary views Exodus as a cultural document, preserving the collective memories of the Israelites and relating them to the major institutions and beliefs that emerged by the end of the time of the Hebrew Bible. It is intended to help the reader follow the story line of Exodus, understand its socio-cultural context, appreciate its literary features, recognize its major themes and values, and also note its interpretive and moral problems. Carol Meyers explains important concepts and terms as expressed in the Hebrew original so that those who know Hebrew as well as those who don't will be able to follow the text.
  St-Johns-Episcopal | Oct 6, 2017 |
In this commentary, Meyers approaches Exodus as mnemohistory, in which the biblical traditions of national origin are understood as phenomena of collective cultural memory rather than as merely historical record. By replacing a positivistic investigation of the past with an analysis of how the past is remembered, mnemohistory allows historical research to merge with the perspectives of literary studies and the sophistication of ideological and reader-reception theories.
