Product Description

Although it is at the heart of the Pentateuch, the book of Leviticus is sometimes dismissed as dry and legalistic mat- erial with little relevance to modern religious concerns. But in this commentary Dr. John Hartley perceives that the message of Leviticus--the significance of pure worship and holy living--is also the heart of vital faith in any age. Amid the prescriptions for sacrifice and ritual to be obser- ved by Israel in the wilderness, the author finds useful ob- servations for the people of God today. The author's sensitivity to theological concern makes this commentary useful in expository preaching. His introduction includes essays on the themes of holiness, God's presence, the covenant, sacrifice, and the relation of Leviticus to the New Testament. Hartley is professor of Old Testament and Chair of the Department of Biblical Studies in the C.P. Haggard School of Theology at Azusa Pacific University. He holds degrees from Greenville College, Asbury Theological Seminary and Brandeis University.

    Hartley's treatment of Leviticus is concise and thorough. He centers on what is the core of Leviticus, not some dry abstract set of ancient laws, but the principles of holiness and love that are contained within those laws. This and the Apollo commentary on this book are ones I use over and over again.

    Hartley is a respected and talented scholar of the first rank. His work on Leviticus is very helpful for those who have received formal education in Hebrew and Old Testament studies. Others could find help here as well, but might be better served using a more accessible commentary. Those looking for an introductory study might want to look elsewhere, as will those seeking a devotional commentary or one that emphasizes application. This is a heavyweight scholarly contribution to the study of Leviticus. It is conservative. It is virtually exhaustive in the range of relevant topics discussed. It includes comments on structure, meaning, philology, and textual concerns. The detailed notes and bibliographies are also excellent.
