Rooker writes well. Leviticus is a difficult book for modern readers. Time and again, I found myself asking, "how is this passage relevant?" In almost every case, Rooker's comments helped answer that question. His commentary manages to be detailed without being too verbose or dry. He writes from a conservative viewpoint, but shares alternative viewpoints as well (usually in the footnotes). I highly recommend it!
