Finally... Nov 22, 2004
I finally read this book, after reading his other 2 books on the Tabernacle of David and the Temple of Solomon. I actually read this book amazingly fast, considering how detailed it is. It also probably seemed fast, because it had less pages than the other 2 books, particularly the Temple of Solomon.
It's a great book, I recommend it for people that really likes to get deep into the Word. It's amazing how many types and shadows are in the Tabernacle of Moses. My favorite shadow is about the dispensations.
God is absolutely amazing...
Another fun book from Kevin Conner Jan 2, 2003
I first became acquainted with Kevin J. Conner's work through his book "Interpreting the Symbols and Types". Having admiration for what was written in that book, I decided to try "Tabernacle of Moses" and "Temple of Solomon" in his Divine Habitation Trilogy. Although very useful, these two books of the DH Trilogy do not measure up to the quality of "Interpreting the Symbols and Types." This is fine, as these books serve a different purpose and touch on different aspects of theology, however I think Conner's strength is plainly manifested in "IST".
I recommend this book for its treatment of the tabernacle and some of the interpretations therein. I was happy to see a somewhat mild explanation of the Shekinah-Cloud mentioned in Exodus 40 (volume three offers somewhat the same pneumatological explanation for the dedication of Solomon's temple in 1 Kings 8). I also enjoyed the general pace of the book and the many scriptural references.
Complaints: This book was written in outline format, not reading format, so if one purchases this book expecting to READ about the tabernacle of Moses, the individual might be let down. The outline format can be cumbersome for those not accustomed to reading outlines. Personally, I think it organizes the information better for those using this book as a quick reference or teaching tool, and it also "gets to the point" without a lot of circumlocution. Also, there is no scriptural index. My gravamen for this book would have to be the sometimes non-ecumenical theological interjections. For example, Conner caustically points out that the bird's-eye-view of the architecture of the interior of Moses' tabernacle is in the shape of the Holy Cross. This is a fine interpretation for Evangelical theologians, however I felt this treatment somewhat heterodoxical and flagrant from the non-Evangelical perspective. There is no canonical or non-canonical (pseudepigraphal or apocryphal) evidence that I know of which paints the bird's-eye-view of the tabernacle as a Holy Cross. This, and other pot-shots like this, may be helpful to certain teachers and students, but I found it to be distracting and mildly abrupt to those not versed in dispensational or evangelical theology.
All in all, this book is a fair cop, and I do recommend it, but recommend it with only 3 stars.
Absolutely fantastic! Jul 30, 2000
I have always found it difficult to work through lecture style books, but this book is one of a kind. From the very first page I gained incredible information on my personal walk with Christ. I always thought of the tabernacles as a boring topic. Not anymore. This is one of the most impacting studies I have done to influence my Christian walk.
The mystery revealed, the hidden seen, the silent spoken. Sep 3, 1997
The "Tabernacle of Moses" is the first of a triology. This book picks up where others leave off. Too often the Old Testament's beauty is lost due to either poor teachers and writers or overwhelming teachers and writers. Kevin Conner brings the Old Testament to a new and a fresher level of understanding. The key to understanding the New Testament is understanding the Old Testament and even more so the Tabernacle of Moses. The student of the Scriptures will inevitably be enriched by the scope and knowledge that is found within this book. Those who have an interest in discovering an appreciation for the Bible and a desire to know the God of the Old Testament in a deeper and more comprehensive way, should get this book
