The contrast in appreciation of Leviticus and Numbers by the synagogue on the one hand, and by the church on the other, is little short of astonishing. The former has considered it crucial to an understanding of God and of the nature of the chosen people of Israel. The latter has usually reduced it to allegory or as a mere historical record of Israelite religion. In this new volume, Hebrew Bible scholar Lloyd R. Bailey examines these often overlooked or underappreciated books of Moses in the contexts of both the Jewish and Christian traditions.

In this new Smyth & Helwys commentary, Lloyd R. Bailey demonstrates in an engaging way the relevance of these books for today's Christian community. The heart of the book of Leviticus is how to live as God's holy people and that the essence of the book of Numbers is how to live as God's holy people in the journey to which we are called. -- Nancy L. deClaiss??-Walford "McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University"
