The book of Numbers tells the story of Israel's experience, ranging from their exodus out of Egypt to their entrance into the Promised Land. The lives of two generations are recorded: the first lacking in faith and receiving their just punishment from God, and the second believing the Word of God and so entering into their inheritance as his children.

Like those generations of Israelites, Christians today are also on a journey between events of deepest significance—from the work of Christ that provides our exodus from bondage to sin and death to Jesus' second coming that ushers his children into the true and final promised land of heaven.

Author Iain Duguid aids both pastors and laypeople on this journey by explaining the profundities of the biblical text, especially its less transparent portions, and communicating the lasting message of God's devotion to those who follow him in faith.

About the Author

A native of Great Britain, Iain Duguid served as a missionary in Liberia, West Africa, before studying for the ministry. He completed a PhD in Old Testament at Cambridge University, and subsequently planted a church on an inner-city housing estate in Oxford, England. He has taught Hebrew and Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi and at Westminster Seminary California, before teaching at Grove City College, in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He is also an ordained minister in the Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church.

While working at the seminary in California, he also planted and pastored a church in Fallbrook. Shortly after he began at Grove City, he planted Christ Presbyterian Church. In his classes, Dr. Duguid is eager to help students learn not merely how to translate texts from Hebrew into English but also how to preach Christ from those ancient texts in ways that minister to the hearts of contemporary congregations.
