I may be tough on the author to prove my objectivity, as this book was a gift which he was honest in asking me to rate. Jesus, my Melchizedek, obviously gets as many stars as I've got to give for eternity. So far as the book points to Him, these are thoughts worth dwelling on.

The author's lesson is well thought out and biblically based, and if the tone of a lesson on a particular topic is what he wanted, he's got it. I could have been drawn into the topic a little more by how he chose it, how th

While conducting research for a different project I was reminded of Melchisedec. I was powerfully moved by the fact that the Bible says that Jesus' High Priestly ministry was patterned after Melchisedec.

He is mentioned by name only eleven (11) times in the Bible and seven (7) of these state that Jesus' ministry is patterned after Melchisedec!

It was a great joy writing this book, and the character study that has resulted in "Melchisedec - A Character Study" has deepened my understanding of Jesus

Was Melchisedec really Jesus? Was he a pre-incarnate manifestation of the Son of God? There is much written in the book of Hebrews to indicate that Melchisedec was a "High Priest," but was he the same person as Jesus Christ?

In "Melchisedec-A Character Study" Robert Dallmann addresses Melchisedec and if, in fact, he was a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus Christ. Mr. Dallmann's conclusion is that Melchisedec and Jesus are one and the same.

Loved this study on Melchisedec. If you've wondered who is Melchisedec, the man who the Bible only mentions somewhat, read this book study and it will help you to figure it out. Or at least help you study on who Melchisedec is. Is he a pre-incarnate of Jesus? Read to find out.

This book is seriously well worth reading. For me, its opening and obvious love of the Lord is excellent. It reads well throughout addressing its subject matter interestingly and in depth.

I won this book via a good-reads giveaway contest.
This book is an interesting comparison of Melchisedec and Jesus Christ.
The author sheds light on this mysterious character in the Bible, Melchisedec is only mentioned a mere handful of times in the Bible, 2x in the OT and in one entire chapter In Hebrews in the NT.
I would recommend all to read this.
Many times we remember the stories of the Biblical historical figures that are constantly spoken of (Abraham, Lot, Noah, Moses, Jesus, John, Luke, M

Excellent Bible Study

A closer look at Melchisidec brings deeper understanding of Jesus and God's plan of salvation. The author makes a strong case for Melchiisidec being a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ, and the passages used enable Christians to recognize God's direction and power from Genesis throughout the entire Bible. Well-researched and written, 5 stars.

The occasional times I ever considered Melchisedek I would be puzzled who He might be. When I came across this book I was intrigued and decided to read it. The author makes it very clear that Melchisedek is none other than Jesus Himself. All of my questions have been answered. It is so clear that what the Bible says is true!

The author writes this book under the premise that Melchisedec is a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus Christ. To the author's credit, he does state at the end of the book, that this belief is not a requirement to the believer. I do believe in pre-incarnate appearances of Jesus, but I did not end up convinced of this one. Whether you end up convinced or not, this book is full of scripture references that you can use for personal study. I received a copy of the book for review purposes.

I have to admit, previously I glanced over the character of Melchisedec in the Bible, mainly due to my lack of understanding. But this study makes the case that he was not just a “mere king” but the pre-incarceration of Jesus. The author uses scripture to clearly show the servanthood, and the continual and consecrated life of our High Priest.
Louisa Black
This is a detailed and thorough look at the Priest Melchisedec.

Little is known about him and the books Genesis and Hebrews is where this author concentrates on getting his information and putting his case across.

This is a character study, not a novel or formatted to read through as a piece of non-fiction as you might be used too, but a format that breaks down the scripture and tries to join the dots up regarding the authors clear argument of what he believes the Bible tells us about Melchisedec.
