Publisher's Description

"Guide me, O Thou Great Jehovah" is one of the best-known hymns in the world. Yet the book of numbers, whose story that hymn summarizes, is seldom read. Why? "Its very title puts the modern reader off," writes Gordon Wenham. "In ancient time numbers were seen as mysterious and symbolic, a key to reality and the mind of God himself. Today they are associated with computers and the depersonalization that threatens our society." In his effort to bridge the great gulf between the book and our age, Wenham first explains the background of Numbers, discussing its structure, sources, date and authorship as well as its theology and Christian use. A passage-by-passage analysis follows, which draws useful insights on Old Testament ritual from modern social anthropology. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series..

    Wenham is a respected Evangelical Old Testament scholar. He writes well. If anyone is seeking a brief, reliable, and accessible guide to Numbers, this is it. This commentary is brief. It does not attempt a detailed study of the Hebrew language, nor extensive interaction with alternative viewpoints. At one time, it was arguably the best Evangelical commentary on Numbers. This is no longer the case (see R.D. Cole), but is still very good.
