Old Testament conceptions of worship must be understood in light of how the death and resurrection of Christ bring these conceptions to a heightened sense of clarity and fulfillment. Longman creatively and clearly brings together the Old Testament data within such a biblical theological grid. His insights will be of immediate relevance for Christians concerned about the nature of worship not only in the Old Testament but also today.

Christians struggle in understanding the relevance of large parts of the Old Testament. This is particularly true of matters concerning the worship of ancient Israel. In this beautifully conceived work, Longman has illuminated the priestly material of the Old Testament in a way that makes it theologically relevant for today. I heartily recommend this work.
