The Holy Centre

The Holy Center - Dorothea Harvey

How are we to read the Bible---literally or figuratively? By examining the concept of the Holy Center, or the Tabernacle, Dorothea Harvey explains how the literal laws for ritual sacrifice---delineated in the books of Exodus and Leviticus---can be understood in a modern, figurative sense and applied to atonement for our personal transgressions, reuniting us with the Divine Presence residing in the center of our lives. At the end of each chapter, Dr. Harvey suggests a meditation based on the biblical selection and offers a personal prayer of thanksgiving for the spiritual renewal that the Word offers. "This is biblical spirituality at its best. With insight backed by outstanding scholarship, Dorothea Harvey probes some of the most inaccessible Bible passages and renders them rich with meaning. Through skilful excavation, ritual practices from the ancient Jewish tabernacle become surprisingly applicable to spiritual issues we face in our own times." ---Rev. Dr. James Lawrence, Pacific School of Religion, Berkeley, California
