Series: International Theological Commentary

This commentary by Frank Gorman shows how Leviticus, though focusing largely on matters associated with the Levitical priesthood, is also important to laypeople. Gorman addresses the question of Israelite identity and what it means to be people of God. Through a careful application of exegesis and exposition, he shows that Leviticus is, foremost, a call to holiness, a weaving together of ritual and ethical issues to provide the community with a means for enacting and actualizing covenant relationship.

"Drawing on significant insights from contemporary studies of ritual and social anthropology, Gorman's important commentary breaks fresh ground in the understanding of ritual in Leviticus.. This bold and imaginative study will stimulate scholars, clergy, and students."
