Our Creator Redeemer
An Introduction to Biblical Covenant Theology
by Hans K. LaRondelle
$ 19.99

Much is at stake in evangelical Christian theology when considering “the covenants”—Old Testament and New Testament.

Theologically, how do we align the concerns of a popular conservative Christian culture that may rightly worry about the place of the Ten Commandments in the public square with a message that often seems to stress that those same commandments have all been nailed to the cross?

Is it all really so simple as “Old Testament = law” versus “New Testament = grace?” Between whom are these two covenants made? How are the two covenants the same? And ultimately, are they really different?

These are not new questions in reformed theology and among evangelicals. But their answers are best found, not in the traditions of theological interpretation, but in a careful Scriptural analysis of salvation history itself.

Thus, in this important new contribution to covenant theology, Seventh-day Adventist scholar Hans LaRondelle chronologically traces through salvation history the footsteps of the Creator Redeemer in progressively revealing His covenant promises and His judgments. From a “redemption-historical” perspective, based on careful exegesis, the author outlines the unity and continuity of God’s covenants with His chosen people.

At a time when questions about the covenant again face us, this succinct volume is a source that makes an exceptionally authentic and thought-provoking contribution. This book effectively reaches beyond the tired, even exhausted, arguments on both sides of the struggle, challenging us all to look at this astounding subject in ways that truly shed light on our ongoing pilgrimage into truth. —From the Foreword, by Willmore D. Eva, Editor, Ministry magazine

This book makes a significant contribution by synthesizing and systematizing theology regarding the covenants from a perspective that is consistent with biblical teaching.—Roy Gane, Professor of Hebrew Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Languages, Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Berrien Springs, Michigan, and author of Altar Call.
