In His Sanctuary by Peter J. Leithart

In His Sanctuary

Recalling the Hope of Glory: Biblical Worship from the Garden to the New Creation
by Allen P. Ross
Kregel, 2006
(591 pages, $35.99, hardcover)

reviewed by Peter J. Leithart

Now a professor of Old Testament at Beeson Divinity School, Allen P. Ross grew up in a German Baptist Church of which his father was pastor, but he has since made his way through Methodism and Presbyterianism, arriving finally in the Episcopal Church. This range of liturgical experience lends an appealing catholic breadth to this work, as he draws on the best of each of these traditions.
