Item description for Numbers (The Tyndale Old Testament Commentary Series) by Gordon J. Wenham...

"Guide me, O Thou Great Jehovah" is one of the best-known hymns in the world. Yet the book of numbers, whose story that hymn summarizes, is seldom read. Why?"Its very title puts the modern reader off," writes Gordon Wenham. "In ancient time numbers were seen as mysterious and symbolic, a key to reality and the mind of God himself. Today they are associated with computers and the depersonalization that threatens our society."In his effort to bridge the great gulf between the book and our age, Wenham first explains the background of Numbers, discussing its structure, sources, date and authorship as well as its theology and Christian use. A passage-by-passage analysis follows, which draws useful insights on Old Testament ritual from modern social anthropology.

Reviews - What do customers think about Numbers (The Tyndale Old Testament Commentary Series)?

Helpful for the "big picture"  Apr 14, 2005
Concise. Well-written. Very helpful in charting out the "lay of the land" of a very difficult Bible book. Numbers is long and notorious for its seeming lack of continuity. It includes extended lists of census results, detailed camping arrangments, fascinating human interest stories, and chapters of ritual law--all mixed together. How do you make sense of it all? How do the details fit into a unified, coherent whole? This is where Wenham helps. None of the seemingly unrelated parts escape his effort to see their logical connection to the main message. Not the last word on the unity of Numbers, but a very helpful start for those interested yet intimidated.
