Item description for Priesthood in Ancient Israel (Understanding Biblical Themes Series) by William R. Millar...
Overview merging of literary, historical, and spiritual perspectives. This merger yields an attractive hypothesis regarding who ancient Israel's priests were and why they told the story the way we find it in the Bible today." "Imagination and story bring to life the familiar yet often neglected concept of Israelite priesthood as Millar explores not only the role of priests but also their spirituality. Novel in its approach and engaging in its style, this work aims to help contemporary readers understand the unique contributions that various Old Testament priests (e.g., Abiathar, Zadok, Aaron) have made to their respective communities and how such contributions continue to have a positive and influential effect on believing communities today."
Publishers Description The goal of this work is to recover for Protestant Christians the spirituality of the priestly traditions of ancient Israel. Journeying into the underutilized regions of the Hebrew Bible, Millar shows readers how and what those priestly traditions can teach us about options open to us in our spiritual quest. Each book in this series provides an in-depth look at a major recurring biblical theme and its lasting theological influence. The series is designed to enhance the reader's understanding of our biblical heritage and its relevance to faithful life today.
