Item description for God Is Closer Than You Think: Discovering the Nearness of God From the Book of Leviticus (The Biblical Relevancy Series) by Mike Darretta...
People often view God as a harsh and judgmental God. Read the biblical book of Leviticus and you just might agree. Leviticus presents a God who seems distant and unapproachable, someone you would not want to get close to. But, as Mike Darretta points out, we live in a day where God is no longer distant, but near. But what has changed? What has brought God near to you and me? In God is Closer Than You Think, you will discover why God is near and is someone you would want to have a close, meaningful friendship with.

God Is Closer Than You Think: Discovering the Nearness of God From the Book of Leviticus Mar 26, 2007
I was both captivated and intrigued by the concept that the author took the reader on a journey of intimacy with God beginning with one of the more challenging books of the Old Testament, the book of Leviticus. A lot people's resolve to read through the entire Bible in a year have been abandoned in the Book of Leviticus as the reader encounters a culture of antiquity that is hard to understand with a portrayal of a faraway God. Yet at this very point of uncertainty the author begins his adventure of helping the reader understand that the God of Leviticus who seems faraway is in fact much closer than we think when we add Jesus to the equation.
As Hebrews 10:1-2 NKJV says: "For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect." The faraway God of the Book of Leviticus becomes more intimate as the shadows of the Old Testament find clarity in the person of Jesus Christ, who is the very image of the things to come.
Thanks Mike for helping us embark in this journey with you. I was surprise, challenged and edified.
