Book Description

10 May 2005 Bible Speaks Today (Book 4)
For many Christians, the Old Testament book of Leviticus tends
to be largely unknown and unread. However, the Christian gospel - which
presumes a knowledge of sacrifice and atonement, of law and grace, of sin
and obedience, of defilement and cleansing, and of priesthood and temple
curtains - makes little sense without the background it provides.

Derek Tidball believes that Leviticus is of foundational importance for our
understanding of God, the gospel and Christian living, and that it needs to
be taught and preached to congregations today. It even has much to say
about the creation of healthy societies. In this excellent expostion, he
shows how Leviticus serves as a preliminary sketch of the masterpiece that
was to be unveiled in Christ, and unfolds its testimony to a faith not of
law but of grace, not of duty but of love, not of drudgery but of gratitude
- and to God's people set free to be holy.

Leviticus contains so many obscure things I thought that it would be useful to have this guide to it (having previously found the Bible Speaks Today volume on Chronicles very helpful). I am now half-way through and have found Derek Tidball's book very illuminating, in pointing out common themes and emphases through the obscure regulations, and the relation of these to other parts of the Bible and the world of the ancient near east. I have skipped some of the detail which I did not need for my level of reading, but it has been easy to do this. This part of the Bible is sometimes derided for its obscure irrelevance, but this very useful book brings home that Leviticus needs to be understood in context if its meaning and relevance is to be properly considered.
