From the book’s foreword by Harold J. Berry: The Old Testament tabernacle provides many parallels to New Testament truths. In particular, it emphasizes the one way of salvation – through shedding of blood – and the need to worship and fellowship with God. In Portraits of Christ in the Tabernacle, Theodore H. Epp searches out the fine shades of meaning in the tabernacle and relates them to salvation and the believer’s daily walk. The Christian life becomes even richer in meaning as it is compared with the tabernacle.
From the back cover: This book is a rewarding study – not only because of what you will learn about Moses, but also because of what you will learn about yourself. Volume 1 examines Moses’ life from his birth to the crossing of the Red Sea. It is a moving account of how Moses was humanly prepared as a leader in the court of Egypt and how he was divinely prepared in the desert for the gigantic task before him. It shows how God strengthened Moses through the trials of the plagues and further prepared him to leader the people from Egypt toward the promised land.
From the book’s foreword by John I. Paton, Literature Editor: When the enemy of God brought Baal into Israel like a flood, the Spirit of God raised up Elijah against him. The Lord needed a man to stand in the gap and the lowly Tishbite was the man He found. Yet Elijah was as human as the rest of us. Where he differed from the average believer was in his single-minded devotion to God. When God commanded, Elijah obeyed. He was a man of faith whose works of faith will live on.
From back cover: This is the story of David – his tests, his triumphs, his fears, his faith and even the temptation which led him from enticement to the sins of adultery and murder. But it is more than David’s story. It is the story of God – loving David, guiding him, chastening him and restoring him. And woven through David’s story is David’s music – his psalms. Reflecting his highs and lows they range from lilting expressions of joy because of God’s goodness and mercy to expressions of bitter pain and depression resulting from his sin. You can walk with David in this book, fight in his battles and pray with them. You can even sing with him, for his psalms are skillfully woven into the circumstances of his life and applied to our lives today.
