Occasionally I'll read something by an author I've never read before and their writing is so good I'll want to read everything else they've ever written. Tremper Longman III fits this category. He writes in an extremely clear logical style that's backed up by a thorough knowledge of what he's writing about.

This book gives a great overview of Israel's worship in the Old Testament and then shows how Christ fulfils and changes those things.

Tremper talks about four aspects - sacred space, sacred act

Going thru the practice of worship in the Old Testament; from worshiping at the alter to the tabernacle to Christ being our worship. How this all leads to Christ The whole purpose of worship is to point to a holy God in the midst of a sinful people. In worship, God is revealed, however, it was done with a strict conditions so that the people would know what true worship was and was not. This book goes into great detail about the strict conditions and how they point to Christ as our tabernacle. O ...more

This is an excellent book. Dr. Longman does a remarkable job of explaining the priestly theology of the Old Testament. He breaks it down into sacred space, sacred act, sacred people, and sacred time. As he does, he not only brings the doctrine of priesthood to life, he makes a solid connection to the New Testament and the ministry of Christ. The chapter ending questions "for further reflection" and his winsome writing style make this a book for anyone interested in understanding the redemptive w ...more

This is a very accessible book covering many themes in Biblical theology. It is not as detailed as TD Alexander's "From Paradise to the Promised Land" and is therefore more accessible to the general reader. It is well set out, and the questions at the end of each chapter are useful discussion starters for a group. What I particularly like is that where there are issues on which the Bible does not give us all the information we might want, Longman does not presume to impose his own interpretation ...more

a great read for anyone who wants to study the Old Testament way of worship, and its connections to Christ, and at the same time, get to personally know Christ more through the occasionally misunderstood and unappreciated Testament.

however, i think, (in layman's perspective) it's still a bit scholarly. I may not have a clue on some of the discussions if not only for my 5-year training at a Bible college.

nevertheless, i'm giving it five stars because I like to see how authors give so much time fo

This is one the best introductory books on how Israel's worship points us to Christ. There are many that quickly jump to conclusions that cannot be supported in the text about how these things point us to Jesus, but Tremper shows us a biblically faithful approach to understanding how these things anticipated Jesus. Highly recommend for any Christian that wants to better understand the first 5 books of the Bible and their importance for Christians today.
