All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)
In this new series, Building the Holy Place, JB Shreve looks at the design and purpose of the Holy Place in the Old Testament tabernacle. The Holy Place of the Old Testament tabernacle was symbolic of our heart and soul. Now that we have become the temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16), the design of the Holy Place provides instruction for our walk before God. If we want to live the life of purpose which God desires, we need to know how to build the Holy Place of the soul as we come before His presence.
Each book in this series provides a unique introduction to essential postures and activities for believers seeking to begin or rekindle their walk with God. Each book in this series was designed as a personal study and a devotional for easy use and addition to your daily devotions.
