Leviticus (Old Testament Guides Series)
To many students no book of the Bible may seem duller than Leviticus. In fact, Leviticus is extremely important for a proper understanding of ancient Israelite religion and worship. Many of its supposed arcane practices actually provide valuable insights into Israelite society and thinking, once they are properly understood in the light of modern studies in social anthropology. In this guide, Leviticus is examined in the context of priestly and related material in the Hebrew Bible, with comparisons from other ancient Near Eastern literature and from modern anthropological studies.
