Mountaintop Theology invites the reader to revisit biblical events that occurred on the slopes or summits of mountains. Employing the disciplines of historical geography and biblical theology, Helyer probes the theological truths underlying these mountaintop experiences. The intent is to gain a fresh perspective on the defining doctrines of evangelical faith.

""Dr. Helyer has taught biblical truth not only in highly popular university classes but also through many teaching tours of the Holy Land and Mediterranean Rim, giving insights that only on-site experience can reveal. This book combines the best of both.""
--Jay Kesler, President Emeritus, Taylor University

""Larry Helyer's book is based on sound biblical scholarship and careful archaeological research. His approach effectively connects Old and New Testament 'mountaintop' stories to practical theological understanding. For example, the chapters on Mt. Sinai (Ten Commandments) and the Mount of the Beatitudes (The Beatitudes) and his subsequent discussion of holiness in the context of both, is worth the price of the whole book. I heartily recommend this deeply satisfying effort.""
--Gene Habecker, President, Taylor University

""Larry Helyer will take you on a journey from the landscape of the Bible to the texture of your soul. In doing so, he visits some of the best-known mountains of Scripture, then scales theological heights by probing the mountaintop experiences of some of the greatest people of the Bible. Read the book and enjoy the climb. Your heart will be stronger for the effort.""
--Paul H. Wright, President, Jerusalem University College/Institute of Holy Land Studies
