IVP Academic Leviticus: Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC]

Renowned Old Testament scholar R.K. Harrison begins this commentary with an introductory section in which he discusses the book's authorship, date, unity, theology, and more. A brief outline of Leviticus is given. The commentary that follows is an in-depth analysis of the book, but written in a way easily read by the lay person.

The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these 20 volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book of the NT. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretations. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Harrison was a highly respected Old Testament scholar, author, and editor in latter part of the 20th century. He writes from an intelligently conservative stance. After weighing the available evidence, he opts for Mosaic authorship (with possible help from priests or others). The commentary is fairly non-technical. It is especially helpful for educated lay-persons, seminary students, ministers/pastors, and teachers. The focus is on exegesis of the text. However, Harrison displays an interest in theology and New Testament connections as well. As with most volumes in this series, the work is somewhat brief. It is also now slightly dated. However, it continues to meet the needs of its intended audience and remains an excellent value.
