||Living Emblems: Ancient Symbols of Faith
By Dr. John D. Garr
Living Emblems: Ancient Symbols of Faith, presents explanations of the rich symbolism manifest in the objects and images of Jewish tradition. Some of these include: the Shofar, the Menorah, and the Tallit. The Restoration Foundation states that "Biblical emblems were designed by God and by his people Israel to emphasize divine truths and to call believers to remembrance of their opportunity and responsibility to worship and honor their Creator."
