Abstract:

Sunday after Sunday in churches across America, Christians flip past the first thousand pages of their Bibles to read, study, and teach from the New Testament. To many, the Old Testament is confusing and, at times, even disturbing. What relevance could these ancient customs have in our modern world? It seems that we have forgotten that the God we worship today, the God who sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to grant eternal life, is also the God of Abraham, Moses, and David. Throughout the Old Testament, God reveals himself directly and dramatically, offering insight into his character and his will. To better understand God and our relationship with him, we must overcome our prejudices and learn to incorporate Old Testament models into our modern faith. Worship is a prime area of Old Testament "deficiency." As modern Christians, we have lost touch with our Judaic roots, abandoning the models of worship established by the ancient Hebrews in response to the commands of God. A better understanding of the Old Testament in general can bring fullness to our relationship with God. More specifically, we can find greater meaning and relevance in our modern worship experience by applying this understanding of the Old Testament. In this fascinating book, Old Testament scholar Andrew Hill offers a thorough Old Testament perspective on the subject of worship, presenting the basics of ancient Hebrew worship in a way that can be easily understood and applied. The author specifically addresses such subjects as the tabernacle and the temple, the arts and Hebrew worship, and the Hebrew religious calendar. - Back cover.
