Covet List for Leviticus Studies


I remember a few years ago hearing that Andy Stanley was preaching through Leviticus verse by verse. I remember being miffed that the reason he did that was so that the church wouldn't grow for the first year and they could get settled as a daughter church – lo and behold the church grew anyways! Frankly I had never even thought of doing more than slogging through Leviticus when I read through the Bible; but that challenged me to actually look at Leviticus.

I have been studying Leviticus for my morning Devotions since January, and have been enjoying it immensely. I cannot get over what a practical book it is. In stark contrast to the typical reaction most Christians seem to have to Leviticus – It has been marvelous in helping me to fall in love all over again with my God and Father. Nothing in the Old Testament will open your eyes to Jesus' redemptive sacrifice the way Leviticus does. For that matter if you've frequently been baffled by Hebrews you need to read Leviticus first, get a grip on it's flow and then read Hebrews.

Accordingly My current Wish List contains some desired reading for my studies in Leviticus.
