Editor reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

Starting with the census of male Israelites of fighting age by Moses and Aaron at Mt. Sinai and following their journey to the Promised Land, Dr. Creasy discusses the Book of Numbers. Making the epic journey into a relatable experience, he discusses the people of Numbers and their 40 years of trials

Summary

Exodus and Leviticus span a period of 13 months in the biblical narrative; Numbers covers the remaining 39 years of the Exodus. In Numbers, Moses counts the people and organizes them by tribe, clan and family, completing a journey that spans a generation. Far from tracking aimless wanderings in the wilderness, Numbers tells the incredible story of survival against all odds, as God grooms a new generation to invade and conquer the Promised Land. This amazing book is brought to life with Dr. Bill Creasy’s vivid storytelling.

Excellent Bible Study

I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.

Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

This is the sixth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Mark and followed by Luke. Numbers has 36 chapters, and the study is comprised of 9 lessons. Total time - 6 hours, 42 minutes.

Dr. Creasy is amazing!!!

The first book I listened to by him was "Paul From Sinner to Saint", it was so good I listened to it twice! I then started Genesis and just finished Numbers...what a feeling!!! Dr. Creasy is not only a great teacher but he is so much fun. He teaches about the trials and tribulations of Moses and the Isrealites and he also points out humor that I would have missed. I have such love for certain people, that when they die I am so sad! What a great story teller, you can really feel his heart and his Love for God!!! I also feel honored to listen to Dr. Creasy because of his credentials and the wonderful way he lives the life God gave him.

Great lecture

Dr Creasy truly makes Numbers cones alive! His lecture paints such great imagery it's almost like you are with the Israelites along their journey.

Thought provoking seminar on Numbers

Using his Marine Corp bootcamp experience, Dr. Creasy provided a fascinating take on the harshness of the Isrealites' 40 year experience in the desert. He also provides a positive take on the "unfaithful wife test" and other seemingly misogynist narratives in Numbers. Though from today's standards it may not seem like it, Numbers was very progressive with women's right given the time and culture it was written.

Dr Bill Creasy

A really reflective, interesting and likable teacher. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to know more about the Bible. He keeps your attention.

The only problem is at times he had a hair done time recalling references but he eventually got there. There somewhere in the last couple of Chapters where his reference wasn't right I was hoping he would find it but never did. But his references always made a bigger undstandable on his point so it was just one. Still a disappointment.

However it won't stop me from listening to the rest of his Biblical lectures their that good.

good explanation and story telling

Dr. Creasy makes these complicated books easy to understand. His stories also really bring the context to the light so you can follow along and comprehend the concept.

Good but wish there was more exposition of symbols

I liked it but I would have liked to have seen more of an explanation of symbols, significance of Geographic locations and names. I'm not saying that this wasn't done but in some ways I feel like it just scratched the surface. I really liked it when he took time to relate the text he was going over to a future relevance like when he talked about the compromise of two of the tribes in helping Israel to enter the promised land to what happened to these same two tribes in the New Testament and then tying it into revelation. I understand that those connections take some time to go into and explain. I just think they're very helpful and would have like to have some more. Overall good lecture on book of Numbers and I do not regret listening.

Another great series of lectures.

I have been thoroughly enjoying the Logos Bible Study series. Dr. Bill Creasy always does an amazing job. I enjoy hearing his perspective. His lectures are illuminating and very thought provoking.
