Following on from the paperback edition of Leviticus as Literature, this is the revised paperback edition of Mary Douglas's classic account of the Book of Numbers. Up to now Bible scholars have tended to dismiss Numbers as a chaotic mix of narrative and laws. In the Wilderness presents the biblical work as a literary masterpiece. Mary Douglas argues that, like Leviticus, Numbers is a highly complex book arranged in a regular ring structure which plots the narratives and laws into 12 parts. She argues that it is only through an understanding of the ring formation of these parts that one can fully appreciate the meanings behind this complex work.
