from the beginning and to the end and Dr Booker shows this very well in very easy format.
Interspersed throughout the book is Richard Booker's own theology, particular unconditional eternal security i.e. "once saved, always saved." I disagree with that theology and I believe the Bible says so as well (Hebrews 10:26, several others). Even Jesus said that not everyone who calls him Lord will enter the kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 7:21-28). And there are many atheists in the world who were once former pastors and/or believers in God. According to the Bible, they will not be in Heaven. And since this is not a thick book (153 pages with six pages of helpful study questions), his viewpoint distracts from the message of the book.
And the message of the book is the constant theme of the blood covenant throughout the Bible, and how the Old Testament laid the foundation for the work that Jesus would complete in the New Testament. Booker gives some background information regarding covenants and identifying them in the Bible. Also, he explained the Tabernacle and priestly garments, and how Jesus fulfilled these. Great stuff! But I particurly LOVED the way he compared the 5 types of Levitical sacrifices to what Jesus did here on earth. WONDERFUL! (I always knew there had to be more than just killing animals). There's also a great section on Jesus in the Passover, which Booker explains even more in his book "Jesus in the Feasts of Israel" (another must-have book). This book gave me a greater understanding of the unifying structure of the Bible.
So if you agree with Booker's salvation theology, you will love this book (maybe even give it 5 out of 5 stars!). If not, then you will still need to get this book! It is a great way to understand how the Old Testament and New Testament go together, how Jesus fulfilled what was put down in the early feasts and sacrificial system. This book definitely belongs in your library!
