- a call to rediscover God's original purpose for our life
- a call to return to the simplicity of a relational walk with God
- a call back to our hebraic roots, which are in Biblical Israel, not today's Jewish expression
- a fresh and surprising look at the two most important covenants: the Mosaic Covenant and the New Covenant.
Shofars, trumpets made of ram's horn, were used in the nation of Israel to call the nation to war, to repentance, to special assemblies. Like a blast of the ancient shofar the Spirit of God is calling his church today to return to its original foundations. This book is not about how to blow a shofar, but about heeding God's call to return to what he purposed faith to be.
What are these foundations? What does God expect of us? What roots do we return to?
The church of Jesus Christ has wandered far from her foundations in Israel. Our theology and practice have become far more influenced by Greek thinking and Greek philosophy than by the historical faith of Israel. Responding to the Shofar's Call is a trumpet call to return to a natural, relationship-oriented walk with God.
This book takes us on a journey of discovery of God's purposes, which alone can tell us what he intended from the very beginning with the Law, as well as why a New Covenant was necessary. Only when we understand the purpose and function of the Old Covenant will we be in a position to understand the New.
Responding to the Shofar's Call will delight you with a common sense approach to understanding the very Scriptures which are so often used to enslave believers in legalism and condemnation. It shows how God's intent for church was a little different, a little higher, than that which many have made of it. You may even learn to see your God in a whole new light and discover that you are His delight!
