“Leaving Egypt shows how the story of the Exodus is our story. God calls his people to take the same journey Israel did, abandoning the false security of slavery to our idols and addictions and pursuing the freedom and joy of life as God intends for us in his kingdom. It tells the story of God who sees his people mired in a death spiral of injustice and enslavement and rescues them, restoring them to dignity. Leaving Egypt is filled with strategies and hope for all readers regarding the common realities of addiction, idolatry, or enslavement of any kind.”
