Notes, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Leviticus

Following the scope of regulation and law in Leviticus, Bush provides concise annotation, exegesis, and practical exposition of the original Hebrew. Bush compares Leviticus with alternative Old Testament books to show variable meaning in grammar and semantic thought.

This volume strikes us, on a cursory perusal, as equal to any of its predecessors, in learning, ingenuity and force of style, while it is certainly superior to some of them in conciseness of style and soundness of judgment.
