The world is full of secular mysteries that cannot be explained or solved, yet people spend hours and hours researching, studying, and asking questions in an effort to find the answer to life’s greatest secrets. Sadly, the mysteries of the Bible, which can be solved through study and prayer, are often ignored.
Using full-color charts, Secrets and Mysteries of the Lost Ark walks you through a study of the ark of the covenant and the sanctuary, two important components of our Christian faith. Designed for individual use or as a group Bible study or church seminar, the twelve lessons in this study guide will prompt you to dive into the Word of God and uncover the truths that Jesus has placed within its pages. The teacher's answers are included in red at the back of the book for easy evaluation of the students' answers.

TEACH Services received the following review:
Pastor James Hoffer is to be commended for writing about the sanctuary through this unique study-method. This book unfolds the importance of the sanctuary message. Ellen White said: “The subject of the sanctuary was the key which unlocked the mystery of the disappointment of 1844. It opened to view a complete system of truth, connected and harmonious, showing that God’s hand had directed the great advent movement, and revealing present duty as it brought to light the position and work of His people” (Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan, p. 423). This is one unique contribution that Adventists can make to the Christian world. I recommend this study to every Seventh-day Adventist.

I just got the book but in looking through it, it is going to be good. I expected a book just to read and was I surprised to see it is a learning tool which I am looking forward to learning.
