A House for My Name:
A Survey of the Old Testament

Peter Leithart (Moscow, Idaho: Canon Press, 2000)

Blurb Review


The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. This OT survey, written for family and classroom reading, reveals the rich weave that makes Scripture the Story of stories. This book will help the reader to understand the message of the OT in its organic connection to the NT. Leithart not only gives us a first-class introduction to the OT in the context of its own time, but also shows how all the Scriptures point to the ultimate object of our faith - Jesus Christ. As R. C. Sproul says (rather dramatically), "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 a greater clarity and joy." The writings of Peter J. Leithart are sadly not known widely enough as far as we're concerned and this book is another great read that should be carefully digested by every student of the Bible.
