The Promises of God: Discovering the One Who Keeps His Word

R. C. Sproul. David C. Cook, $19.99 (272p) ISBN 978-1-4347-0423-8
The Reformed pastor of a Florida congregation and author of more than 80 books (The Holiness of God) take a long look at covenants in the Bible. Through the looking glass of the Old and New Testaments, he views the vast numbers of promises in Scripture. "We saw that Moses was the mediator of the old covenant, and Jesus is the Mediator of the new covenant," Sproul writes. In each of the book's 14 short chapters, the author outlines his message, cites Bible verses, gives a study quiz, and prepares the reader for the missive he presents. I don't see this; I do see chapters accompanied by study guides that follow this form. Please clarify. He is clear in connecting the meaning of the Garden of Eden to the ministry of Jesus, but the covenants of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament are quite different, he argues. He spends time doing a long exegesis of the book of Hebrews, which ties the covenants together. This book is for the serious Bible student who wants to take a close, academic look at the Bible.
