Shadow and Reality dares to deal with a topic that some Bible students avoid like the avian flu — why were shadow precepts instituted in ancient Israel, and what significance, if any, do they hold for the Christian pilgrim?

Questions raised and discussed include,

  • Which covenant promised that God would dwell among men in a temple — the Abrahamic or the Sinaitic?
  • What value does God Himself seem to place on shadows?
  • Does Scripture show that God despises animal sacrifice?
  • What do the priesthood, temple objects, and sacrifices symbolize?
  • What is the point of purity laws?
  • What realities are portrayed in the Sabbath and the biblical holy days?
  • Was David speaking figuratively when he spoke of dwelling in the temple forever?
  • Why did Jesus cleanse the temple if it was about to lose its significance?
  • What was Jesus' attitude to Old Testament shadows?
  • What does Colossians 2:16-17 mean?
  • What is wrong with popular shadow theory?
  • If a temple were built, should Christians take part in ceremonies conducted there?
  • What did the author of Hebrews mean when he said that shadows were “imposed until the time of reformation”?
  • Why will a temple be built during Jesus' millennial reign?
  • Will the millennial temple have the ark of the covenant in it?

This book is a must for all who want to understand what the Bible has to say on this vital and oft-misunderstood topic.
