The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. This Old testament survey, written for family and classroom reading, reveals that rich weave that makes Scripture the Story of stories, revealing and reminding that all of Scripture points to Christ.
"One of the most important lessons any Christian reader of the Old testament must learn in order to truly understand its message is its connection to the New testament. Jesus himself said that whole Old testament looked forward to His coming suffering and glorification (Luke 24:25-27, 44-48), but it is surprising how many ignore this crucial principle of interpretation. Peter Leithart has written A House for My Name with that lesson in mind. He not only gives us a first-class introduction to the Old testament in the context of its own time, but he also shows how all the Scriptures point to the ultimate object of our faith—Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this book."

A House For My Name will lead you out of the house of bondage to Enlightenment reductionism that still holds our hermeneutic captive, helping you read, pray, and think like a Hebrew, and so understand the Word of God with both greater clarity and joy."
