When I add a book I almost always remove a book, a practice that allows me to focus on quality over quantity. Over the past couple of years I have focused on building a collection of commentaries that will include only the best volumes on each book of the Bible. I studied them and then began my collection on the basis of what the experts told me. Since I did all of that work, and since I continue to keep up with the project, I thought it might be helpful to share the recommendations.
The Book of Numbers
The book of Numbers narrates a key chapter in the story of Israel. It describes a period of transition from the exodus generation to the generation that would enter the Promised Land. Gordon Wenham is among the best contemporary writers of commentaries. I consider his commentaries on Genesis and Leviticus the best available commentaries on those books. He has also written the most generally helpful commentary on the book of Numbers.
Ray Stedman - Now we come to the book of Numbers. In Numbers we have dramatically set forth what is perhaps the hardest lesson a Christian has to learn -- to trust God instead of his own reason. This is where we struggle, isn't it? We think that what we want to do and the way we want to do it is the right way. The hardest struggle we have, even as these Israelites had, is to learn to believe that God knows what he is talking about and that what he tells us is the truth, and is for our good, and to operate on that basis despite what friends and others around are telling us concerning the right way.
