Returning Home will return tomorrow. Meanwhile, I want to tell you about a book that’s a great way to learn about the Old Testament priesthood. The book is, A Day in the Life of an Old Testament Priest by Kara Glott. It’s geared toward the child reader, and, IMO, the info is too much for one sitting for your average elementary-aged child.
This is a self-published work with beautiful, detailed illustrations by the author herself (and her sister, I believe). The drawings help place the reader into the story, which is from the perspective of Abishua, a descendant of Aaron’s line. His narrative provides a glimpse of what a Levitical priest would experience, both in service and in family life. It includes a hefty, visually appealing, index at the end of this thin work.
Glott posted about her efforts creating A Day in the Life on her blog, for the invisible. (This is where I first learned about it.) Simply put, A Day in the Life of an Old Testament Priest is jam-packed with beneficial information. It became available June 2017 and is published by Anakrino Press.
