This commentary underscores two major themes found in Leviticus: holiness, which means being set apart, and the presence of God in the midst of the people. Owens argues that since holiness is an intrinsic characteristic of God, and since God dwells in the midst of the people, the people must be holy as well. He shows how Leviticus provides a way of life that can accomplish this.The Bible Today In this commentary on Leviticus, Edward Owens takes a difficult and antiquated book and makes it brilliantly accessible to contemporary readers. Through careful and detailed analysis, Owens draws out the timeless lessons and values embedded in Leviticus and helps readers appreciate not only the literary artistry of the book but also the many rich traditions of the Jewish faith and culture.Carol J. Dempsey, OP, Professor of Theology (Biblical Studies), University of Portland, OR The book of Leviticus reflects a sacramental understanding of our relationship with God and neighbor. Fr. Owens's commitment to heightening present-day appreciation of the rituals, laws, and concern with holiness of this biblical book is evident on every page. He consistently links Leviticus with the whole of Sacred Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, and with the way faith is embodied in worship and living today.Katherine M. Hayes Professor of Old Testament Seminary of the Immaculate Conception Huntington, New York
