Earthly Shadows, Heavenly Realities
Temple/Sanctuary Cosmology in Ancient Near Eastern, Biblical, and Early Jewish Literature
Edited by Kim Papaioannou and Ioannis Giantzaklidis
So whatever happened to the temple? In this unique collection of essays, the writers direct our attention to where the early Christians looked—to the reality of the sanctuary in heaven. An obvious and often overlooked theme endemic to both testaments, it has profound ramifications for faithful Christian theology today.
