For most Christians today, there is no message of Leviticus, for Leviticus goes unread. Yet Leviticus was the first priority in Jewish instruction of the law of Moses. Jesus and his hearers knew Leviticus well and took its teachings to heart. The documentary hypothesis that reigned supreme over Pentateuchal studies for most of the twentieth century undercut the internal coherence of Leviticus that swayed the Jews of the New Testament period, speculating that rather than originating with Moses, Leviticus was the nostalgic revisionist history of Judaic reformers in exile. But more recently, such theories have fallen from favor, and Leviticus is being reconsidered for its historical representation of the ancient and foundational era of the Jews. Derek Tidball explores the picture in Leviticus of Israel being brought together under the law of Moses. Here is a definitive presentation of what life as the people of God was to be like: the civic, cultic, religious, moral, legal, family and ritual expectations of the covenant community. In accessible prose, Tidball reveals the message brought to the Jews by Leviticus in their day, making room for us to grasp its message to us in our day.

This is an excellent addition to the BST series. The relationship between God and the Israelites is explaining clearly and points to the need for Christians to take that relationship into account as we submit to God.

“Insightful and Applicable”. These are the words you will be thinking when you finish “The Message of Leviticus” by Derek Tidball, as it is one of the most well written books on Leviticus that I have had the privilege of reading. This book is parts of the ever-growing series called “The Bible Speaks Today”, produced by IVP Academic. “The Bible Speaks Today” is a thoroughly Evangelical series which serves as an introduction as well as practicality explaining the book of Leviticus through a thoroughly Evangelical perspective.

In the introduction, with regard to the dating of Leviticus, Tidball argues well for an early date while, briefly, against critical arguments for older dating. His arguments systematically destroy any critical arguments that have been put forth to this time. His arguments are up today and even focus on the most critical and modern viewpoints, even ones that have just recently been published.

Tidball is a excellent exegete specifically and when it comes to the Pentateuch, it shines in this volume. Tidball makes sure that the reader is getting an important look into the culture of the day and its influence on the text. Through this process Tidball brings about conclusions which are gold for any pastor preaching exegetically through the nook of Leviticus.

Through exegeting the narrative and ceremonial portions of Leviticus, Tidball demonstrates why he is a great Old Testament scholar of the modern age, which makes this introduction to the book of Leviticus a must-read by pastors preaching or Layman teaching through the book of Leviticus either in the Pulpit or in the Sunday School room. I highly recommend this volume as an aid in either of these circumstances.

This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

Tidball brings the various theories and interpretations together in a helpful and applicable manner. Tidball's commentary is one of the few recent commentaries on Leviticus to draw together both edges of the hermeneutical horizon (what it meant and what it means). This book will be a great asset to anyone's library who wishes to understand the book of Leviticus.
