What if you could escape your bad habits, chronic sins, temptations, or addictions? What if every aspect of your personality functioned in perfect balance? What if you were whole and complete: free of pain, shame, and hguilt? Well, the Old Testament book of Leviticus relates to all of these possibilities.
According to Ray Steadman, "In Leviticus, God steps into the broken mess we have made of our lives and he promises to make us whole again, just as he is whole. All he needs is our cooperation, but "the process is completely voluntary--God never forces us into it."
Stedman says the sacrifices and instructions in Leviticus arte written in love, written in blood, and they shout: someone is coming! New Testament Christians know who that someone is, and have a perspective on that coming that Old Testament believers could not fully appreciate. Made in his image and pronounced "very good", God made us for himself and works through the events of our lives to make us like Jesus. With Stedman as your guide, you'll better understand the fascinating book of Leviticus, the entire Bible, and yourself, so that you, too, can become whole.
The book of Leviticus speaks to us in our brokenness and shows us how we can become holy, whole, and complete.
Ray C. Stedman (19171992) was one of the great pastors, expositors, and spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, he was pastor of the Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto, California, for forty years. With over twenty books to his credit, from Spiritual Warfare to his insightful commentary Adventuring Through the Bible, Stedman spanned the experiences of the Christian life with his writing. His book Body Life had a tremendous impact on the church in the twentieth century.
"Leviticus is a thrilling book, and ... I consider it one of the most important books of the Bible. If it were possible for me to get the message of this book into the hearts of all people who are trying to be religious, all cults and 'isms' would end"
