He is successful in explaining the Book of Leviticus as ‘the figurative exhibition of the way of salvation;’ as giving ‘a series of symbolic forms suited to the primeval stage of the human race, and fitted to edify the infant people of God.’
Difficulties are met face to face, and no useless parade of grammatical lore cumbers the pages of this truly learned and evangelical commentary.
