“Knowing the Old Testament temple was a place which temporarily housed the Lord Almighty, what connection is there between that house for the Lord and the New Testament temple?” --Lonnie D. Tolander

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Lonnie D. Tolander’s new book reveals how the principles of worship in the Old Testament are found in the worship of the New Testament.

The Old Testament temple was a place that temporarily housed the Lord Almighty before the New Testament temple, which is personalized through people. Yahweh showed man how the temple was to be formed, which required faith expressed in action. Within the temple grounds, there were to be sacrifices given unto the Lord from a humble heart. There was always to be a consuming fire in the inner part of the temple. Because the Almighty is Holy, there was to be an awe, or healthy fear, of God. As freely as the Lord’s goodness was received, it should have been given.

In analyzing Solomon’s construction and finalization of the Old Testament temple, Author Lonnie D. Tolander deliberates on the four principles the Almighty uses to help bring the fullness of His presence to His people: faith, fire, fear, and freedom. Through the fulfillment of these principles of worship, Tolander saw how the Lord inspired an Awakening. “Awakening: Faith, Fire, Fear, and Freedom” reveals how Yahweh constructs His New Testament temple.
