Ye Olde English May 28, 2006
It is worth noting that this book was first published in the 1800's or early 1900's and that the writing style is thus outdated by almost or more than a century. If you don't enjoy reading 19th-century language, this book may be sufficiently boring.
Must Read!!! Mar 7, 2006
The author does a fantastic job painting a picture of Yeshua (Jesus) throughout the Torah. The volume of the scroll truly is about the messiah and this book is a fantastic review of the many references found in the OT.
The only negative thing I can say about the book is that the author cites scripture and doesn't always explicitly state the exact verses. If you are familiar with scripture, you have a searchable bible, or you trust the author this is a moot point. This is not a reason not to read the book... this book truly is a gold mine.
If you pray for your daily bread this is a buffet you can feed on for a very long time.
Excellent work on biblical typologies Jan 2, 2003
Ada R. Habershon hits a home-run in her erudite book "Study of the Types." Drawing mostly upon Old Testament typologies and their New Testament antitypes, Habershon shows christological typology in a clear and concise manner. She does not claim her connections and findings to be authoritative or final, she only offers what she considers to be the obvious connections between certain Old Testament ocurrences with New Testament parallels. I for one found the chapters "Types of the Resurrection", "Types of the Holy Spirit" and "The Garments of the Believer" very insightful.
My only complaint about this book is that it is not written to those with moderate or novice understandings and recongition of biblical passages. Habershon frequently and openly quotes scripture without referencing which verse she's quoting. This is fine for those theologians that know the Bible excessively, but if you are just now beginning to familiarize yourself with the Bible, and want to see some of the references and quotations she makes in this book, have a KJV concordance on hand so you can follow her scriptural references (most modern publications of the KJV, like the Scofield, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, etc., include a concordance in the back).
All in all, I recommend this book for its content and price. Pastors and religion instructors will find the information very helpful in making sense of the Old Testament for students, and the layperson will become more fluent in the language of typology from having studied this wonderful book.
The Greatest book on Typology May 10, 2000
About 4 years ago I was headed off to Russia on a missions trip when a friend of mine gave me this book to read while I was there. As soon as I picked it up it lite a fire in me for the study of the Types. Ms. Habershon is very broad in her approach of the types. She possesses not only depth, but also a masterful story telling quality. I cannot tell you how this book has broadened my understanding of the Types but I encourage you to get it. Her list in the back that relate the Church and the Levitical Priesthood are especially interesting. The only book that could give this book a run for it's money is Gleanings from Genesis by A.W. Pink. All I can say about this book is get it! I guarantee you won't regret it.
wonderful and enlightening Jul 9, 1999
This book is so helpful in bringing the Old Testament to life--I never thought I could get through the book of Leviticus until I read this book and actually wanted to learn more about the different types of sacrificies, etc. As a notorious speed-reader, I had to force myself to go slowly so as to absorb all that she was saying.
