Helpful non-technical treatment.
April 3, 2011
Harrison was a highly respected Old Testament scholar, author, and editor in latter part of the 20th century. He writes from an intelligently conservative stance. After weighing the available evidence, he opts for Mosaic authorship (with possible help from priests or others). The commentary is fairly non-technical. It is especially helpful for educated lay-persons, seminary students, ministers/pastors, and teachers. The focus is on exegesis of the text. However, Harrison displays an interest in theology and New Testament connections as well. As with most volumes in this series, the work is somewhat brief. It is also now slightly dated. However, it continues to meet the needs of its intended audience and remains an excellent value.
