A House for My Name: A Survey of the Old Testament

A House for My Name: A Survey of the Old Testament - Peter J. Leithart As always, Peter Leithart has written an excellent book, one that shows you both the "woof" and the "warp" of scripture. It seems often we view scripture in one-dimensional Bible story form, but rarely compare across the entire span of Biblical scripture. Leithart shows how this view can show you amazing truths. Have you ever thought how many times you see women at wells? Think of Rebecca, Isaac's wife. Think of the daughters of Midian when Moses came to their rescue. Think of the Samaritan woman at the well who spoke with Jesus. This is just one example of dozens that are found in Leithart's book. HIGHLY recommended, I will be reading and using this book in the future as we study scriptures!
