The Message of Numbers: Journey to the Promised Land

Author(s): Raymond Brown

Message

The book of Numbers, Raymond Brown reveals, offers a portraiture of a better life. Its message is eminently suited to our contemporary world, a world without firm spiritual and moral foundations. The country ahead is the pilgrim's goal and anchor. In contrast to contemporary thinking, Numbers pictures life as an accompanied journey, and not a meaningless maze.
