The presence of God among humankind is a topic present throughout the Bible and our history. Throughout the Biblical narrative, we see the different places in which God approaches people. Whether it is the Garden of Eden, the Temple, or our modern day churches, God’s presence is an important topic of discussion. In The Temple and the Tabernacle: A Study of God’s Dwelling Places from Genesis to Revelation, J. Daniel Hays takes an in depth look at God’s dwelling places.
Each chapter takes an in depth look at God’s dwelling places, including: scriptures, charts, pictures, and diagrams.Hays connects the chapters and shows the similarities and differences in each of the locations. He stays close to scripture and even delves into some word study to further clarify the concept behind the words.
