This stimulating study explores the narrative context, literary structure and theology of Leviticus. Morales follows its dramatic movement, examines the tabernacle cult and the Day of Atonement, and tracks the development from Sinai's tabernacle to Zion's temple - and from the earthly to the heavenly Mount Zion in the New Testament. He shows how life with God in the house of God was the original goal of the creation of the cosmos, and became the goal of redemption and the new creation.
'This book ... promises to give us not only a theology of Leviticus, but also a richer theology of the Pentateuch, and finally of the whole Bible. I predict this volume will spawn some excellent sermon series on Leviticus!' - D. A. Carson
