Approaching Holiness

Approaching Holiness aims to assist in the personal and family study of the history and teachings of the Old Testament. The book gathers some of the clearest writings on the Old Testament that have been published by the Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University. The Old Testament is not only foundational to our understanding of the birth, life, Atonement, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of the Savior, but it also teaches us about God, our faith history, and the spiritual heritage of the house of Israel.
