Hartley's treatment of Leviticus is concise and thorough. He centers on what is the core of Leviticus, not some dry abstract set of ancient laws, but the principles of holiness and love that are contained within those laws. This and the Apollo commentary on this book are ones I use over and over again.
Hartley is a respected and talented scholar of the first rank. His work on Leviticus is very helpful for those who have received formal education in Hebrew and Old Testament studies. Others could find help here as well, but might be better served using a more accessible commentary. Those looking for an introductory study might want to look elsewhere, as will those seeking a devotional commentary or one that emphasizes application. This is a heavyweight scholarly contribution to the study of Leviticus. It is conservative. It is virtually exhaustive in the range of relevant topics discussed. It includes comments on structure, meaning, philology, and textual concerns. The detailed notes and bibliographies are also excellent.
