New Beacon Bible Commentary
Publisher: The Foundry Publishing – formerly Beacon Hill Pres
Here in NBBC Numbers, the commentary completing the Old Testament portion of the New Beacon Bible Commentary series, we find the story of two generations of Israelites. The first, departing from Sinai, begins a wilderness journey that is marked by fickle faithfulness and failures; the second finds itself waiting on the plains of Moab on the verge of entering a land of promise. Themes such as God’s covenantal faithfulness to a rebellious people, his holiness, and the intercession of their servant leader, Moses, are carefully explored in this outstanding volume. Written by an incomparable team of scholars, this commentary delves into the literary forms, structural issues, and theological details found in this significant Old Testament book. This is truly another well-crafted addition to this pivotal commentary series.
The New Beacon Bible Commentary is an engaging, indispensable reference tool to aid individuals in every walk of life in the study and meditation of God’s Word. Written from the Wesleyan theological perspective, it offers insight and perceptive scholarship to help you unlock the deeper truths of Scripture and garner an awareness of the history, culture, and context attributed to each book of study. Readable, relevant, and academically thorough, it offers scholars, pastors, and laity a new standard for understanding and interpreting the Bible in the 21st century.
