God in Our Midst: The Tabernacle and Our Relationship with Godby Daniel R. Hyde

In truth, the tabernacle narratives have much to teach us about God Himself, about sin, about redemption, in Christ, and about how we are to live for God today. In God in Our Midst: The Tabernacle and Our Relationship with God, Rev. Daniel R. Hyde shows that these obscure narratives are "profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness" (2 Tim. 3:16).
By employing solid hermeneutical principles and New Testament revelation, Hyde demonstrates, that the tabernacle passages point to Christ. He encourages readers, when considering the confusing details of the tabernacle, not to ask questions about the meaning of minor points; but rather to ask, "What does this passage teach me about God, about my sins, about redemption in Christ, and about how I am to live?"
God in Our Midst is an encouraging and enlightening tour through the Bible's overarching narrative,, showing that we serve the same God who said, "I will, dwell in your midst," God who tells us that we are the true tabernacle, the dwelling place of God (Eph. 2:22).

Anyone who hikes in the desert knows how hard it can be to navigate such terrain and how important it is to prepare. I learned this once when I and several friends decided to explore some of Joshua Tree National Park’s more than one-thousand square miles. Wandering into the wastes, none of us thought to pack more than our teenage bravado and perhaps a Capri Sun. We snaked for hours past gangling specimens of that namesake Joshua tree and over immense mounds of granite. By noon we were lost. Without maps, compasses, water, and food we became increasingly disoriented, fatigued, and nervous. Fortunately, we came across someone who knew the way back. Since then I've known how essential the right tools and supplies are for wilderness treks. Reading the Old Testament can be much the same, especially for people unfamiliar with the landscape. What does it all mean? How do I grow from it? Why does it seem so dry? Thankfully, Rev. Daniel R. Hyde comes to our aid with a new book to guide and nourish believers in our study of Israel’s desert wanderings, and in particular, help Christians understand the purpose of the Tabernacle for today. God in Our Midst (Reformation Trust, 2012) is an easy door into Biblical Studies that not only digs into its main theme, but presents readers with sound tools for interpreting the entire Old Testament in light of the New Testament. The book is based on Hyde’s sermons through Leviticus, but it has been fortified with historical quotes, archeological insight, and devotional application. Pastors will find substantial help from a complete subject/scripture index, but the studies will not fly over the heads of less advanced learners, either. God in Our Midst shares illustrations from the acclaimed ESV Study Bible and, at 275 pages, it’s just long enough to feel thorough without overwhelming you. Best of all, you’ll discover the apparent wilderness of Leviticus blooming with life to enflame your devotion to Christ. In all, I found this to be a rewarding book and I wish it had come into my hands shortly after I was converted—a lot of confusion could have been avoided. Hyde sets the standard for mixing theological precision with Biblical reverence and spiritual devotion.
