Numbers: God's Presence in the Wilderness
Pages 400 pages
I have become a collector of commentaries ever since my seminary days in the 1990s. As such, I am only going to recommend the best overall commentary for each book of the Bible on this site. For Numbers, for the preacher/teacher, Duguid's work gets my nod. Yes, his commentary is sermonic in nature, but it is accessible and enjoyable to read. What you do not get in way of depth re: Hebrew word studies or critical analysis, you do get in relevance and application for biblical teaching. (I like John Currid's work here, too). If you only had one commentary on Numbers in a "pastor's library," get Duguid.
I have benefited from everything I have read by Iain Duguid. His commentary on Numbers is well-written and aimed specifically at pastors. [Full Review]
