George A.F. Knight's contribution to The Daily Study Bible Series is a commentary that demonstrates the high value of Leviticus for Christians. It is written in a style that is accessible to lay people, while maintaining usefulness for advanced students as well. Knight argues that many elements of orthodox theology, such as the meaning of the atonement, the nature of the People of God, and others have their origin in Leviticus. He further asserts that a proper biblical theology is an Old Testament theology. Thus, for Knight, Leviticus is a very important book, that should no longer be ignored by the Church. The commentary is written from a moderately critical perspective, but there will be much that is useful to those from many other perspectives. George A.F. Knight is a former pastor who served as President of the Pacific Theological College in Fiji and as Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of New Zealand. He also taught at Knox College, New Zealand; the University of St. Andrews, Scotland; and McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.
