Item Description...
Overview
Numbers is one of the "lost" books of the Bible--lost because it is neglected by many Christians. Named for its two "numberings," or censuses, of Israel--the generation that left Egypt and the generation that entered the land of promise--Numbers frames a fascinating account of the pilgrim people Israel learning to trust God. Readers are frequently puzzled by the dazzling variety of literature that makes up this book and wonder how to make sense of the whole. But in this thorough exposition of Numbers, Raymond Brown discloses the careful design and message of Numbers. He shows how God provides for the basic needs of the ideal life: to be loved, to be free, to be certain. Further, Brown highlights the rich theological themes of Numbers, untangles its meaning for today's readers and shows its enduring relevance for God's people.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Israel's institutions and community life from Numbers  Nov 18, 2008
Brown has written a great little commentary on Numbers, the fourth book of the Pentateuch. The author combines exegetical insight with practical challenges and applications. His exposition is lighter on textual exegesis and heavier on the theological implications of the text, but this is a commentary on The Message of Numbers. Brown's penchant for an organized analysis (First, Secondly, Thirdly...) betrays a pastoral perspective but provides good summaries yet, at times, stretches the text. So, the objections of Aaron and Miriam leveled against Moses were ethnic, vocational and domestic (106-07), with the third being quite speculative.

In general Brown's work is a welcome addition to commentaries on this lesser known book of the Hebrew Bible. He covers key issues and themes of the book and provides good insight into its teaching as well as helpful applications along the way. His emphasis on community is refreshing. Unfortunately, less emphasis is given to rhetorical features and genre. I would recommend this book for any early learner of this book or one who wants a refreshing re-read of the insightful book of Numbers.
