A complement to the author's earlier Overtures to Biblical Theology study on prayer, this volume addresses the topic of worship as articulated in the first five books of the Bible. Rather than a history of Israelite religion, Balentine's volume examines the "vision" of worship expounded in the Torah in relation to priesthood, creation, liturgy, and covenant. He concludes by discussing the contemporary situation of experiencing God's hiddenness and a world caught in despair. Balentine proposes that a fresh look at the Torah offers possibilities of counter-imagination and hope.Table of ContentsProlegomenaPart One: The World That Shaped the Torah's VisionPart Two: The Torah's Vision: A Priestly Kingdom and a Holy NationPart Three: The Vision That Shapes "Another World to Live In"
