  • Book Of Numbers

    $41.00

    The book of Numbers can be complicated and confusing for students, exegetes, and pastors to unravel. Ashley removes much of the confusion by dividing the Hebrew text into five major sections and showing how each section contributes to the entire book’s theological themes of obedience and disobedience. His detailed verse-by-verse comments are intended primarily to explain the text rather than to speculate on how the book came to be in its present form. The introduction includes an extended bibliography.
