"It's not just that we were created and then given a covenant," writes author Michael Horton. "We were created as covenant creatures--partners not in deity but in the drama about to unfold throughout history." While some Bible readers quake at the mention of "covenant" or "doctrine," it is vitally important to recognize and understand the significance of covenant and its role in bridging the gap between sinner and salvation. Why? Because to understand covenant theology is to understand how it unifies the diverse teachings of Scripture, binds the Old and New Testaments as one narrative, and enriches the meaning in your relationship with the Triune God. Whether new to Reformed theology or not, every believer needs to understand the importance of covenants. GOD OF PROMISE unpacks covenant theology so you can explore the core of Christianity: knowing - and honouring - the promises of our Creator. Since biblical times covenants have been a part of everyday life. Simply put, they are promises, agreements, or contracts. But how do they translate into faith and the reading of Scripture? Are covenants merely elements of a narrative? Or do they represent something more? And what are the eternal implications of "cutting" a covenant with God? In GOD OF PROMISE, author Michael Horton unwinds the intricacies of crucial covenant concepts, showing how they provide a significant organizational structure for all of Scripture. They give us a context in which to understand the voices and message of the biblical narrative. They provide life with a goal and history with a meaning. Whether you're a pastor, ministry leader, or professor, GOD OF PROMISE will give you a new understanding of covenants and covenant theology, providing a framework for an important theological concept. - Publisher.
