Overview

Typology is a fascinating subject that can lead to many hours of intriguing study and open up crucial areas of Christian living - but if you are not careful to keep the rules you may go far astray.
The major rule is that types are meant to amplify doctrine, not to originate it.
Scofield, in his Reference Bible, gives us wise advice: "Nothing may be dogmatically asserted to be a type without explicit NT authority. All types not so authenticated must be recognised as having the authority of analogy (likeness or similarity), or spiritual congruity (agreement or harmony) merely."
A type may be a person, an object, an event or even an institution. God in his wisdom has arranged for some of these persons, objects, events and institutions to prefigure some meaning for us which can open up a wealth of deeper understanding of the Spirit - led life.
Be very careful though not to read too much into a life, such as Abraham's. Parts of his life do indeed bring out eternal type truths but other events in his life have no spiritual significance.
This volume is a combined effort on the part of Barry and Ken Chant.
It is to be hoped that from this book you will gain a desire to delve even more deeply into the pages of the Old Testament to discover for yourself more wonderful types not fully developed here. These will strengthen your faith in God's foresight as he watched over the OT writers.
