From the Back Cover
These twin convictions, shared by all of the contributors to the New International commentary On The Old Testament, define the goal of this ambitious series of commentaries. For those many modern readers who find the Old Testament to be strange and foreign soil, the NICOT series serves as an authoritative guide bridging the cultural gap between today's world and the world of ancient Israel. Each NICOT volume aims to help us hear God's word as clearly as possible.

Preparing studies on Leviticus I downloaded a few books on Leviticus and related topics. Wenham's commentary was by far the best resource giving a sense of what each section was about and then providing a New Testament background where applicable. It is surprising how much of the NT is informed by Leviticus! Recommended for all teachers who are attempting the important and exciting (really!) book of Leviticus.
Regarding the Kindle implementation the links in the TOC only link to chapters 1, 8, 11 and 17 making going to particular chapter something of a chore for a book best used as a reference rather than one to read straight through. The indices refer to page numbers and do not link to the text and so are not very useful. None of which is enough to take away a star and to be honest to be expected for a book published in the 70's.
Whether you are just looking for an introduction to Leviticus or whether you are revisiting it, this is definitely one of the most important and accessible books to consult for study of Leviticus.
People are under the mistake belief that because we are "no longer under the law," the Old Testament is no longer relevant to our daily lives as Christians. This is where Gordon Wenham's book comes in.
Wenham's commentary has opened this otherwise ponderous book in a way that I never dreamed imaginable. Truly all scripture is profitable!
Wenham has a way of extracting the spiritual nugget out of the law that is applicable to us. While we do not earn our salvation, nor could we ever do anything to merit Eternal Life, G-d is still a holy G-d, and it is written in both Old and New Testaments "Be ye holy, for I am holy."
Read Leviticus, by Gordon Wenham and see how this all fits into the big picture of "Christ in you, the hope of glory."
