Leviticus, Numbers – Roy Gane – NIV Application Commentary

NIV Application Commentary Leviticus NumbersRoy Gane is the author of the Leviticus and Numbers volume in the NIV Application Commentary series.

The author of this commentary is an expert in the subject matter, according to reviewers.

More space is devoted to Leviticus than numbers in this commentary.

The application section will be especially helpful to preachers and teachers, especially in relation to Leviticus.

Leviticus and Numbers tell of an epic journey to freedom, while illuminating and challenging modern conceptions of God.

Vivid imagery of rituals, laws addressing tough issues, and narratives ranging from exultant to gut-wrenching show what it means to interact with the Lord and how to live according to his holy principles as part of a redeemed community of faith.

Roy Gane (Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley) is a professor of Hebrew Bible and ancient Near Eastern languages at the Theological Seminary of Andrews University.

He is author of a number of scholarly articles and several books including God’s Faulty Heroes, Altar Call, Ritual Dynamic Structure, and Cult and Character: Purification Offerings, Day of Atonement, and Theodicy, as well as the Leviticus portion of the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary on the Old Testament.

The NIVAC Series

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible.

But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own.

They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application.

The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done!

The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together.

This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context.

It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
