For many Christians, the Old Testament book of Leviticus tends to be largely unknown and unread. However, the gospel makes little sense without the background it provides.
In The Message of Leviticus, Derek Tidball shows how this vital part of Scripture is of foundational importance for our understanding of God, the gospel and Christian living, with a meaning that continues to be of utmost relevance today. In this excellent exposition, he demonstrates how Leviticus serves as a preliminary sketch of the masterpiece that was to be unveiled in Christ, testifying to a faith of grace, love and gratitude – and one that sets God’s people free to be holy.
