The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5InsightfulMay 21, 2018The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Tyndale Old Testament Commentary series is a stalwart study of Gods word that has been trusted for decades and will continue to be trusted for decades Moore. One of the newer volumes in this historic Legacy is the volume on Leviticus. The previous volume by R. K. Harrison has been supplanted buy the new volume by Jay Skler.
This is Jay Sklers first foray into the Tyndale Testament Commentary series yet this is not his first attempt at a commentary itself. Skyer is a professor of Old Testament and Covenant Theological Seminary and is well known for his academic efforts in the study of Leviticus and the priesthood. All of his works are scholarly yet applicable to the pastor scholar. Yet the one that stands out Above the Rest is his commentary on The Book of Leviticus to self.
This volume is laid out in the same fashion as all Tyndales commentaries. With a short yet potent introduction followed by analysis and commentary. Yet what makes this work worthwhile is the additional notes and appendices that Skyer uses to explain and theology wise from a Biblical theological study in Leviticus. Specifically his excursus on unclean and pure animals in Leviticus as fascinating and applicable to anyone who is doing a study through the Book of Leviticus. Whether it be a pastor small group leader or Ministry leader, this excursus will explain very confusing and misunderstood parts of this book in the Pentateuch. Only weighing in at just shy of 340 pages this commentary shines as a bright spot and it already spectacular series.

Here is a volume aimed at Bible students and pastors that will provide real help at an economical price. Mr. Skylar has spent much of his career on this portion of Scripture and it shows.
There is a fine Introduction that runs through page 84. It well addresses the more vexing issues of Leviticus. Solidly conservative in its conclusions, this volume well handles the ethical questions that arise. The categories of sin that are clearly present are explained as are the ritual states of impure, pure, and holy. Great care is given where our cultural simply is not familiar with what is asked of the Israelites. There are some fine charts that give visual help and greatly increase our comprehension.
Blood atonement is given its due. the illustration of a check covering the debt before it clears the bank was distinctly rewarding. Because it is so foreign to our thinking, ritual and why it can be so important is brought out. The Introduction ends where I think any one on Leviticus shouldJesus!
In the commentary proper every passage is given sufficient, interesting, and helpful discussion. You could not help but gain by this fine volume. The Tyndale Commentary series now under revision finds another worthy volume here. I highly recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
