About the Author

Perry B. Yoder is Professor of Old Testament at Goshen College, Elkhart, Indiana. He is coauthor of 'Seeing the Text: Exegesis for Students of Greek and Hebrew' (Abingdon, 2001).


"Perry B. Yoder's clear and approachable study of Leviticus works with the most recent scholarship to unlock key theological ideas such as atonement, the holiness of an ethical life, and divine grace. This commentary will be of enormous help to both pastors and educated laypersons seeking to understand what can seem like a puzzling but fascinating biblical book."--David Janzen "Reviews"
"Focusing on the text of Leviticus surfaces the question, 'How do people live with a holy God?' Perry B. Yoder guides the reader to consider obedient purity requisite for knowing and worshiping God. Reading with the text leads to the surprising discovery that God is gracious, not angry; friendly, not an exacting bookkeeper."--Lynn Jost "Reviews"
"Perry B. Yoder teaches readers that Leviticus is not a book of ancient, cryptic rules but rather an invitation to encounter a gracious and holy God. Throughout his commentary, Yoder adeptly narrates Leviticus for followers of Jesus today. Yoder's insightful, well-researched, and pastoral commentary will be a gift to preachers and students who seek to understand one of the Old Testament's most underestimated books."--Melissa Florer-Bixler "Reviews"
"Perry B. Yoder is a consummate teacher, with a singular gift for illuminating the biblical text, and with an eye to how it informs the church today. That gift is very much evident as he leads us into Leviticus, revealing a holy, gracious, and forgiving God, with directions for how to worship and live."--Gerald Gerbrandt "Reviews"
"Perry B. Yoder provides an engaging study of Leviticus for the serious Bible student and the practicing Christian, disclosing a gracious God who invites obedience as well as sacrifice as a response of gratitude to God's love. Yoder provides a measured approach to key New Testament texts and the doctrine of atonement."--Robert W. Neff "Reviews"
