About Us

Exodus Books specializes in books and materials for education, edification, and enjoyment. We always use the Oxford comma. We carry over 25,000 carefully-selected new and used products. These include homeschool materials, school curriculum, quality literature, and Christian books and media.

We’ve been in business Since 1994 (starting with two bookcases of books), and have grown to serve tens of thousands of children thanks to the thousands of homeschool families and many schools that depend on us for advice, great prices, and fast and thoughtful service.

Our mission is to provide quality materials that help parents and schools educate the children in their care, and in the love and knowledge of God.

The exodusbooks.com website offers a wealth of information about the products we carry, including hundreds of in-house reviews, product descriptions, and samples. The purpose of the site is to help you in your work of educating the children in your care by making the site a valuable resource through many external links, author biographies, and descriptive topic headings.

Meet the Exodus Staff

Eli Evans –  Owner, consultant

Eli is the oldest of seven children. He attended a combination of private school and homeschooling since 2nd grade, and has always been grateful for his parents’ decision to educate him in this way. Eli has worked at Exodus since 1998 when he took it over from the founders of Exodus.  Eli is an expert in homeschooling and homeschool curriculum, and serves as the main book buyer for Exodus. Eli also serves the Exodus community through extensive coaching of families, helping them to design and customize their curriculums and school plans. Eli is the father of 5 children and they live in Mulino, Oregon.

Emily Wright – Book buyer, website artist

Emily fell in love with words when she was very young. An avid bibliophile, her collection contains over 400 books (and counting)! She can usually be found with a cup of coffee and her nose in a book (even at work!). At Exodus, she fills several roles, the main one being our used book buyer, but she also does all the graphics for the website, handles much of the customer service, and does other behind the scenes things that keep the store operating!
