Abstract

bibliographical infonnation in the exposition for those interested in pursuing matters further. One particular strength of the exegesis is that there are many helpful word studies. This is particularly necessary when dealing with technical language common in legal material. The author is also well acquainted with recent sociological approaches to the study of ancient Israelite society. This is particularly evident in his discussion of the concepts of holiness, separation, sacrifice, and the disposal of impurity. One weakness of the work would be the limited steps taken by the author to present the narrative and theological place of the book of Leviticus within the larger framework of the Pentateuch. Since the author affinns that there is at least some priestly redaction in the book of Joshua, some attempt to place the book of Leviticus within the Hexateuch would have been helpful as well. The volume is thorough, well researched, and makes an important contribution to the study of Hebrew legal literature. The discussions in the introduction and exegesis are carefully done, and communicate clearly to students interested in the book of Leviticus. Jeff S.
