God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology by Michael Horton
"Thought is packed tight in this masterful survey of the covenantal frame of God's self-disclosure in Scripture, but for serious students it is a winner. Theologian Horton displays the biblical wisdom of mainstream Reformed teaching most vividly."
--J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College
"God of Promise is a rigorous and articulate defense of a traditional view of covenant theology. Dr. Horton's federalist emphasis gleans from well established reformed writers while, as usual, adding his own highly readable and insightful commentary."
--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary
"The covenant concept is central to the biblical revelation and must therefore be the foundation stone of any truly biblical theology. Michael Horton has brought covenant theology to life in a way which engages modern thought and appeals to contemporary students and pastor alike. His book is a clear guide to an essential topic."
--Gerald Bray, Anglican professor of divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Sanford University
"It is one thing to give up dispensationalism. But what do you put in its place? Here's an outstanding introduction to classical Reformed covenant theology. This is the way to read and understand the Bible! This one will rock your world--whether you be a dispensationalist, a progressive dispensationalist, or even a Reformed Christian who gets unnecessarily squeamish about a covenant of works. Michael is a great theologian, a superb writer, and most importantly, my friend."
--Dr. Kim Riddlebarger, senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim
"This book is more than merely an introduction to covenant theology. It is not only intellectually informative, but spiritually stimulating. I found it very helpful to my own walk with God."
--Jerry Bridges, staff member, Navigators Collegiate Ministry; author, Pursuit of Holiness
"In this masterful summary of covenant theology, Michael Horton uses his exceptional gifts as a theologian to explain covenant as the central organizing principle of Scripture. Horton carefully shows how systematic covenant theology holds together many important biblical principles in this proper balance! Faith and works, justification and sanctification, law and gospel, human responsibility and divine sovereignty. Clear and comprehensive-the ideal introduction to covenant theology."
--Dr. Philip Graham Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
