With refreshing respect for the reader, Delbert Hillers lays out the evidence for his case cautiously and asks the readers to form their own decisions. He very sensitively explicates the many figures of speech and collects a most helpful set of biblical passages which illuminate the text. His skill in saying much in a few, well-chosen words is impressive.
