‘I have never seen a burning bush, have never suffered a plage of boils (even as a seventeen-year-old the acne wasn’t that bad),have never parted my bathwater and walked through the middle,’ says Andrew Sach, ‘What possible relevance does the book of Exodus have to me?”
We set about discovering the message of a Bible book for us today using various tools (first introduced in ‘Dig Deeper’). The Repetition tool helps us to see that God’s name is a big deal. The Context tool shows us why it was important to beat the Amalekites. The Quotation/Allusion tool uncovers a miniature Garden of Eden where we least expect one. And so on
Rather than a Hollywood movie, this is more the how-they-made-the-movie footage that you get in the DVD extras. As well as showing you the treasure, we want you to grow in your ability to unearth such treasure for yourself in other Bible books.’

‘Be blown away by the God who rescues his people from slavery.’ Anna McCracken
‘A wonderfully robust and refreshingly deep analysis of Exodus.’ Adrian Reynolds
