Product Description

Leviticus and Numbers can be difficult for modern readers. In this accessible distillation of scholarship on these two books, Bellinger attends to the cultural structures through which they developed, their literary shape, and their theological perspectives. He hopes to facilitate a dialogue between Leviticus, Numbers and modern readers.

Bellinger explores recurring themes of God's divine presence with the people, the holiness of God and God's people, the purity and wholeness that are required for worship, and the sacrificial systems that provide a way to deal with impurity. He also examines the way Leviticus and Numbers provide the modern reader with stories about Israel's successes and failures in living within the order of these systems.
