Numbers (Tyndale Commentaries)
Wenham, Gordon J.
‘In ancient times numbers were seen as mysterious and symbolic, a key to reality and the mind of God himself. Today they are associated with computers and the depersonalization that threatens our society,’ writes Gordon Wenham. In bridging the gulf between the book and our own age, Wenham explains the background, structure and theology of Numbers, as well as its Christian use. His analysis of the text draws on social anthropology to offer insights into Old Testament ritual.
