Noted Catholic author and exegete A. J. Maas' two-volume Christ in Type and Prophecy has been a standard reference concerning the prophecies in the Old Testament foretelling the coming of the Christ for over 100 years. Catholic and Protestant scholars alike have mined Maas' work on the Old Testament, which brings out the truth that the whole life of Jesus Christ has been the object of prophetic vision and divine revelation from the very beginning.
The Works of A. J. Maas (4 vols.) also contains The Life of Jesus Christ According to the Gospel History, Maas' harmony of the Gospels into one continuous story, as well as A Day in the Temple, Maas' in-depth look at the sacrificial services and Temple-rites which prevailed in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus' arrival.
