Shows how the story of the Israelites’ redemption from their idols illuminates our own story of idols and redemption in Christ. Exodus is a real story about a difficult journey down a long road—a story about God’s plan for redemption. Most Christians don’t worship golden idols as the Israelites did after coming out of Egypt, but we do set up idols on our own desert road—idols like substance abuse, pornography, gluttony, and rage. And we suffer at the hands of our idols as well as those created by others. We need more than deliverance from our trouble—we need to be set free from sin and its effects. Redemption is not a step-oriented recovery book; it’s story-oriented and Bible-anchored. It unfolds the back-story of redemption in Exodus to help Christians better understand how Christ redeems us from the slavery of abuse and addiction and restores us to our created purpose, the worship of God. Readers will discover that the reward of freedom is more than victory over a habitual sin or release from shame; it is satisfaction and rest in God himself.
