What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"Dr. Kenneth Mathews is a superb student of the Holy Scriptures who always teaches the Bible with a view toward its proclamation. In this lively exposition, he shows us that Leviticus, though neglected today in many pulpits, is not only theologically seminal but also eminently preachable. A great contribution to this series!"
Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"Ken Mathews is a respected scholar and a faithful expositor. Both of these competencies are reflected in this work on Leviticus. Mathews brings to life the marvelous truths of a book that intimidates and therefore causes far too many to ignore it. This is a welcomed addition to this outstanding series. Read it and be blessed. Use it and bless your people."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"An illuminating treatment! Kenneth A. Mathews is among the few scholars who know how to discuss the legal texts of the Old Testament with appreciated aliveness, and that aliveness is vividly evident in his treating of the holiness theme in Leviticus. His new commentary illumines the text for preaching the gospel against the backdrop of Old Testament rituals and hopes. An excellent study!"
James Earl Massey, Dean Emeritus and Distinguished Professor-at-large, Anderson University School of Theology

"Dr. Mathews shows something of what Jesus meant when he said of Moses, 'He wrote about me' (John 4:46). He demonstrates that Leviticus is a book that foreshadows the riches of Christ the fulfiller. The preacher will find much help in this commentary for the task of showing that Leviticus is not to be dismissed as dull, legal prescription for ancient Israel, but is arresting, interesting, and relevant to Christian living."
Graeme Goldsworthy, Former Lecturer in Old Testament, Biblical Theology, and Hermeneutics, Moore Theological College
