What People Are Saying About A House for My Name:
"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 the 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 strongly recommend this book." -Tremper Longman III, author of Making Sense of the Old Testament
"This Old Testament survey effectively calls evangelicals to repent of their rejection of 'externals' such as rituals, ceremonies and institutions. It contends that the typical evangelical view of the Old Testament is eerily similar to that of old-time liberalism, even though evangelicalism has always defined itself in opposition to such perspectives." -The Dallas Morning News
"Families can deepen their understanding of the beauty and connectedness of God's story of His covenantal relationship with His people." -The Presbyterian Witness
"So many evangelicals don’t know what to do with the Old Testament, and they’re missing out on so much!" -Alastair Roberts, author of Echoes in Exodus
