By Brian Kranick  

We are indebted to Brian Kranick for this illuminating exposition of the Book of Exodus. One who reads this book will have a much clearer understanding of the four Gospels because Exodus, along with the prophecy of Isaias, is the best and clearest revelationin the Old Testament of the Savior to come and his mission.

The typology that the Fathers and Doctors of the Church have spoken of is here collected and examined and presented for ouredification. One glance at the table of contents will be enough to convince you that this book is crucial for understanding theGospels and the history of God’s people both in the Old and New Testaments.

He specifically reminds us of the fact that God himself designed all of the liturgical seasons and feasts and that he alsogave explicit directions for every minute rubric and prayer of all of the liturgical rites, sacrifices, and architecture. Our Lord and hisapostles carried on these rituals in the new and eternal sacrifice, not only the one on Calvary, but also in the continuing sacrificeof the Mass as given to us by Our Lord himself. That ritual had for almost 2000 years been called the Roman Rite.After reading this book you will re-read the Gospels, especially the descriptions of the Passion, with new “eyes to see.” But ifthe Gospels are newly enlivened for you, just wait until you assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Roman Rite once again.It becomes a deeper and more contemplative experience because now, the Book of Exodus, through this work will have beenopened to you, and the phrase from Luke 24:32; “Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way andopened the scriptures to us?” shall amaze you with its immanent relevance to each of us in today’s increasingly perfidious, andtherefore confusing, world.
