Helpful exposition of Numbers
4 stars By Hoa, Sep 05 2017
Brown takes the book of Numbers and expounds it from beginning to end. He often provides helpful explanation and background information. It has a pastoral quality, with many illustrations and contemporary application. Brown shows how Numbers points to Jesus, though his exposition is sometimes weighted towards exemplary application. Useful for any Christian wanting to understand and apply the book of Numberse.
