Leviticus is a very difficult book to read. Eyes glaze over with alarming frequency. All the more important, then, to have a good selection of commentaries that explain the text, pointing us to Christ all the way. At the top of any Reformed person’s list should be Currid, Bonar, Wenham, and Hess. This new commentary looks interesting, as there are not many commentaries on the text coming from a theological perspective. Students of the text should also have the new AOTC commentary, as well as the Jewish commentary of Levine. A hint to WTS bookstore: they really should carry Milgrom, which is undoubtedly the very best Jewish commentary in existence, and certainly the most thorough commentary on the book ever written. Hartley is excellent as well, and one should not forget Gane and Tidball for preaching.
