Albert B. Simpson, a master expositor of the Word of God and one of the best-known preachers of his day, devoted a lifetime to lifting up Jesus Christ.^^Perhaps in none of his writings did he succeed in that objective quite so well as in Christ in the Tabernacle.^^Simpson vividly illustrates how the Tabernacle was designed to represent and prefigure the most important teachings of the Scriptures concerning Christ, the Church and the individual Christian.^^In eight illustrative chapters, Simpson pictures the wilderness Tabernacle in exquisite detail -the ^indestructible wood, the pure gold, the fine linen-superimposing on all of it the likeness of Christ.^^
The classic book, Christ in the Tabernacle by A.B. Simpson, is subtitled "The Old Testament portrayal of the Christ of the New Testament." A.B. Simpson again brings the truths of the Old Testament wilderness tabernacle and its makeup, linens, structure and furnishings contained within to the forefront of a simplistic theological discussion on how Christ is portrayed by those items. It is a true, simple and honest approach at showing how the Old Testament priests and people of God (the Israelites) could look forward to the coming Messiah and see him through the ordinary things they dealt with in their daily worship. In eight chapters A.B. Simpson brings to life the wilderness tabernacle in vivid detail and shows how the indestructible wood, the gold, the finest linens, the carvings were all superimposing on all of it the likeness of Christ. A. B. Simpson lifts up Jesus Christ in this book and tries to get the lay person to understand the importance that all Scripture points to Christ both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. To A.B. Simpson, it was vital that Christ was visible as the coming Messiah in the Old Testament and the Messiah that died and was resurrected in the New Testament.
Simpson was a major figure in American evangelicalism at the close of the 19th century. He founded a publishing house, edited a weekly magazine for more than 40 years, wrote over 100 books, pastored churches, raised up social minisitries, founded a college, wrote dozens of hymns and gospel songs and instituted the faith promise system. He also founded a denomination, The Christian and Missionary Alliance, which is known worldwide for its aggressive teaching, preaching, and churchplanting ministries in more than 50 countries.
