Immanuel in Our Place: Seeing Christ in Israel's Worship (Gospel According to the Old Testament)
Longman, Tremper III
“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”See All

“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.”See All
“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.”See All

This book provides fascinating insights into the Old Testament tabernacle and temple, the priesthood, the sacrifices, and festivals. More than that, it shows how Jesus is the fulfillment of Old Testament sacred space, sacred acts, sacred persons, and sacred time. An aid to pastors, teachers, and laymen in teaching and reading the Old Testament, this work will enrich our understanding of Christ and deepen our worship.
