Come Boldly to the Throne

This publication deals with the topic of the sanctuary ini the Letter to the Hebrews. Since the sanctuary theme is so pervasive in Hebrews, the book follows more or less the chapters of this important New Testament document as a commentary does and looks at the sanctuary from a christological perspective dealing with issues such as the superiority of Jesus, his priesthood and ministry, the sanctuary, the covenant, our assurance, and Jesus and our future. It addresses questions that are of special importance for Adventists and yet are worthwhile to be considered by all those who want to follow Christ.
