What does it mean to be in the presence of God's holiness? How can it affect us whether we seek it out or stumble upon it? Can it truly change our very reality to encounter it?The essayists in this volume explore these questions at the heart of Christian worship, considering the oft-neglected Old Testament as essential to know what we're about when we begin to worship. Following the movement of the Hebrew canon--beginning with the Pentateuch, moving through to the Psalms, then wisdom literature--the chapters each consider a separate aspect of worship, from theater to the Sabbath to sacred space, offering new inspiration. Evocative woodcut artwork by Margaret Adams Parker provides a striking backdrop to the text.Written primarily by Old Testament professors, Touching the Altar will make a stirring supplemental text for introductory or elective Old Testament courses. The engaging essays will also go far toward providing deeper worship for any Christian.
