In Christ in the Old Testament, James A. Borland focuses on God's appearances in human form rather than the shekinah, the pillar of cloud, or other manifestations of God's presence. His purpose is to present a positive theology of theophanies rather than simply a defence against erroneous views. Borland looks at the characteristics of Christophanies and their use by God. It is the most comprehensive book of its type; although not every Christophany is investigated, all categories are represented.
I heartily commend this work to every serious student of the Scriptures who wishes to serve Christ... Chalcedon did not say it all. There is work still left to be done and it would appear that God is calling our generation by the ministry of the Holy Spirit to set our hands to the job and to state in even clearer terms what our contemporaries must hear if they are to see Christ.
