Many good intentions to read the entire Bible have foundered on the rocks of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Do these books have literary qualities? How does the storyteller tell the story? In Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, Stephen Sherwood, C.M.F., applies the tools of narrative criticism to look for the literary qualities of these three biblical books. Chapters are "General Introduction, " "Leviticus, " "Numbers, " and "Deuteronomy." Each chapter contains a general introduction to a biblical bo which is followed by notes which make observations on the literary qualities of smaller units of each book.
Stephen K. Sherwood's commentary on the books of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy provides a distinctive approach to the final forms of these three books of the Pentateuch.Beverly W. Cushman, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI
