God, Pharaoh, and Moses
Explaining the Lord's Actions in the Exodus Plagues Narrative
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"William Ford has combined careful scholarship, original thinking, and theological awareness to provide the reader with an exciting new reading of the Exodus complex of events. His detailed study of the ten plagues is outstanding in its observation, explanation, and challenge to the modern reader to take the biblical account seriously. His thoughtful study encourages us to respond appropriately in worship and proclamation of the Good News of the God of Exodus, revealed to us in the true Passover Lamb, Jesus, the Messiah."
--Richard Harvey, All Nations Christian College
"William Ford brings to this task a high degree of competence in Hebrew, a disciplined and rigorous exegetical eye and a subtle theological sensitivity. I am happy to commend this study warmly."
--Paul M. Joyce, University of Oxford
"Ford has helped me, at any rate, to understand the biblical text in a fresh way that does justice both to critical method and to contemporary faith. I hope that my own experience of having my eyes opened and being enabled to make better sense of a famous and difficult narrative will be shared by many other readers too."
--R. W. L. Moberly, from the Foreword
