By Valerius Herberger
Translated by Matthew Carver

The exodus of God’s chosen Israel is the greatest story of redemption in the Old Testament. In more than 120 Christocentric, devotional meditations on the book of Exodus, Valerius Herberger shows his fervent belief that Jesus Christ is the center of every part of Scripture. Herberger does not seek to give an academic analysis or a grammatical exposition of each passage, but rather to emphasize the life and work of the Son of God. In these meditations the reader will find spiritual and practical applications for every Christian today. Intertwining the words of Scripture and the poetry of the Church’s hymnody with his own pastoral insight, Herberger teaches the faith and preaches the truth of salvation in Jesus.

“The aim of all Scripture is Christ (Luke 24:27), and the biblical commentaries of German Lutheran pastor Valerius Herberger (1562-1627) demonstrate this in every passage….Matthew Carver’s translation matches Herberger’s original both in terms of faithfulness and in terms of beauty. Carver’s scholarly footnotes give sources of poetry, prayers, and customs. He has also turned great German and Latin verse in great English verse: a skill that few have! Preachers today will find Herberger a superb model of preaching that is truly catholic, evangelical, and Christ-centered. People of all vocations will find in Herberger rich Gospel consolation for life in the Church Militant.”
