Created to Draw Near: Our Life as God's Royal Priests

By Edward T. Welch

Many Christians prefer to keep God at a safe distance—a distant God makes fewer demands. They imagine God has rules just for the sake of obedience, missing the point that God delights in making them holy so they can draw near to him. God’s plan from the beginning has been for his people to draw near to him as a kingdom of priests.

In 40 short, meditative chapters, best-selling author Ed Welch traces iterations of the priestly job description from the garden of Eden to the heavenly city in a way that helps believers discover their identity as royal priests and learn what it means that they were created to be made holy as they draw near to God and receive his lavish hospitality.
