"The title of this book takes me back to my boyhood days in Angola," writes the author in his foreword, "where as the son of missionary parents I knew what it was to trek and camp for weeks on end. . . . My father would lead family worship at dawn and then conduct a Bible study at dusk. . . . One particular series that I have never forgotten was on the Tabernacle in the wilderness. I can still visualize the scene as we sat, with African carriers, around the campfire outside our tent . . . the 'missionary's tent' served to represent the presence of God--as the Scriptures were unfolded and applied by the Holy Spirit we had] an experience of camping with God."
This book opens modern readers to the world of the children of Israel, helping them to view the Tabernacle as they did. They will see the "tent" in which God camped with His people, revealing His purpose, power, and glory. They will discover that every detail of the Tabernacle points to Christ and will be reminded of the words of Augustine: "The New is in the Old concealed. The Old is by the New revealed."Connects the Old Testament story to the New TestamentWell-established author with international ministry forumHighlights one of Scripture's most pervasive topicsThis printing revives a highly-referenced and much sought-after resource
"The Tabernacle: Camping With God is just the kind of book pastors need to make a basic presentation. Knowing the value of outlines, I can say that I am impressed with Olford's well-placed outlines of each chapter and his commentaries on each point."
