A House For My Name
A Survey of the Old Testament
The best stories subtly weave themes and characters and symbols into a stunning final tapestry. This Old Testament survey, written for junior high readers and up, reveals the rich weave that makes Scripture the Story of stories. Leithart has a gift for conveying the deep truths of Scripture in a gripping and understandable way. Even seminary students rave about this one.
"A House for My Name will lead you out of the house of bondage to Enlightenment reductionism, . . . helping you read, pray, and think like a Hebrew."
– R.C. Sproul, Jr.,Tabletalk magazine
"This Old Testament survey effectively calls evangelicals to repent of their rejection of 'externals' such as rituals, ceremonies and institutions. It contends that the typical evangelical view of the Old Testament is eerily similar to that of old-time liberalism, even though evangelicalism has always defined itself in opposition to such perspectives."

"Families can deepen their understanding of the beauty and connectedness of God’s story of His covenantal relationship with His people."
- The Presbyterian Witness
