. About the Author: Benjamin Galan
grew up in a Christian home in Mexico City. During his studies, Galan became enamored with natural sciences. In college, Galen studied physics and mathematics, and grew indifferent and hostile toward the Christian faith. Along with the French mathematician Laplace, Galan believed God was no longer a necessary hypothesis.
After additional studies, Galan began to long for deep, satisfying connections and meaning in his young life. Through the moving testimony of a friend in school, Galan began to read the Bible with renewed eyes, and eventually returned to church. As he became more involved in the ministry of his home church, Galan sensed God's calling.
During his theological studies, Galan fell in love with the Old Testament and understood the Old Testament as the key for understanding the New Testament.
[Rose Guide to the Tabernacle] is very detailed and easy to use. I facilitate adult education classes and use this book to assist in teaching. I especially found the charts/diagrams extremely helpful. At times I have made copies for the students to use, and they were received with great response! The charts/diagrams are large and colorful and easy on the eyes, and jam-packed with wonderful information. The definition sidebars are also very useful. The overlays are irreplaceable for demonstration purposes. This book has numerous references contained all in one!! (i.e. encyclopedia, dictionary....). I have encouraged students to purchase this resource, as it will provide for many years of enjoyment! Bravo on a work well done!
