For some reason the cover design was changed a bit from what it was on the "Genesis" volume; still similar but they don't quite match up. As expected, Hahn and Mitch hit another one out of the park with this latest release.
Exodus: Ignatius Catholic Study Bible - Scott Hahn - Google Книги
A must have for a serious study of Exodus, but valuable to all readers who want to have a better understanding of this exciting and challenging second book of the Pentateuch. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I bought the Kindle version of this study Bible. I was not disappointed. The RSV-2nd Catholic Edition text is a translation to love, to study and to use in one's private devotions. The editors provided great commentaries of their own and of the Fathers of the Church. One can also look into the Catechism of the Catholic Church articles referenced in the Bible text for further guidance.
Navigation is good in my Kindle Touch. But I wasn't so excited about the formatting. You can increase the size of the main text, but this will also increase the size of the commentaries. Did they make a formatting error here, like they switched the format? Navigating from the commentaries back to the main text sometimes produced two sizes of font on the page: Ignatius please provide an update on this and correct the formatting.
You can just use the same size font for main text and commentaries. Speaking of the Fathers one thing that stood out were the essays on Mosaic Ceremonial Laws: These alone are worth the price of the study Bible! They are commentaries from some of the Fathers of the Church on the golden calf incident. I could not have imagined how they looked at the golden calf incident! There is now for me, a new perspective on the Lord Jesus's words " They are no less sharp and incisive. I feel humbled and blessed at these gifts from the mind of the Church.
Exodus is the perfect study guide, It has the complete readings of The Bible so you don't have to flip back and for with your own Bible and the explanations. Then organized with Word Study, detailed explanations at the bottom of each page, maps, and at the end of the book each chapter has questions for understanding and for application. It is the best study guide I have ever had. Our Bible instructor had suggested it and I have told everyone else in class to purchase it. The next Bible study will be on Luke and I will purchase that one also. Not great bible study.
I used the Ignatius Study Bible on the book of Genesis. I found the footnotes and word studies informative.

I am using the Exodus book as a resource and another study to use to lead a study group. I found it frustrating when it would refer to a note or word study that was contained in a different book without giving its content. We received a total of 21 copies in all. In these turbulent political times it's making realize how precious religious freedom truly is.

I'm enjoying the book, and using the book for myself and my bible study class! Ignatius Press did a great job on the NT material and it's great to see the same detail and explanations for the OT books as well. This is a very simple 'footnote' approach to a commentary that encourages one to read the Scripture along with the reference materials. There are additions and extras that make this resource stand out. Can't wait for the rest of the OT books to be complete. See all 56 reviews.

Last year, I did a pretty thorough read-through and study of Genesis. I then started a read-through of Exodus following a similar reading plan: I've been picking through this a little at a time, but as Harvey poured down Last year, I did a pretty thorough read-through and study of Genesis.
I've been picking through this a little at a time, but as Harvey poured down Biblical amounts of rain and destruction, I got into an Old Testament mood and was motivated to finally wrap this up. So here are some brief comments: The commentary is pointed, concise, and explanatory of key words or phrases. It provides just enough detail to let you read through the material on your own while still clarifying a lot of the "huh? In some cases, this brevity results in a somewhat-superficial treatment of much larger theological or historical issues, but I think it strikes the right balance for a casual reading of scripture.
In my reading, I always went through this material first. But as I said when I reviewed the Genesis Ignatius book, the Navarre "level of generality tends to be higher and directed more toward material for reflection than specific teachings or clarifications. As a result, where the Ignatius commentary facilitates the direct reading of scripture, the Navarre commentary works better as a supplement to that reading. It is a translation from the Jewish perspective by an expert in ancient Hebrew, who focuses on preserving the literary quality of the original language and has commentary extensively focused on language rather than theological issues.
I loved it so much that I picked up a copy of his larger "The Five Books of Moses," which includes the Genesis translation I'd already read plus the remaining four books of the Pentateuch. As with the Navarre Exodus, no separate review because I'm only halfway through the book. Dec 21, Richard Grebenc rated it it was amazing. I will not go into detail here about the format of the book see my review of "Genesis" in this series for that.
But I do want to point out several items of interest specific to this volume on the book of Exodus. An illustration of the plan of the Tabernacle makes true the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. A chart tying the plagues on Egypt to "the gods of Egypt" i. And the two topical essays, on the date of the Exodus and the multiplication of legal laws after the golden-calf incident, are fascinating. In fact, a happy addition relevant to the latter essay is a three page section at the end of the commentary quoting some Church Fathers and Aquinas regarding the matter.
I hope the authors will consider including more of the Fathers and Doctors in future volumes as well. I was glad to see six blank pages at the end of the volume for note-taking during Bible study. One very minor quibble: For some reason the cover design was changed a bit from what it was on the "Genesis" volume; still similar but they don't quite match up.
