Far as the Curse is Found

Far as the Curse is Found

$24.99

Paperback

The Christian religion is not an otherworldly, eternal doctrine about the nature of deity or a polite philosophical discussion about the relation of spirit to matter. Instead, it is the historical unfolding of God’s covenantal involvement in this world, the culmination of which is God’s coming into this world in the person of Jesus Christ.

Far as the Curse is Found is a retelling of the biblical story of God’s unfolding covenant from creation to new creation. Readers are led to wonder anew at the redemptive work of God in our own history, in our own human flesh. Pastors, students, and those interested in biblical theology are among the many that will gain fresh insight into the biblical story of redemption.

I can't think of anything more important for the preaching, teaching, and study of the Bible today than that students of that Word be immersed in the wonderful, beautiful, and powerful story of God's covenant. Mike Williams has made a valuable contribution to this end...Drawing from a wide range of Reformed and evangelical scholarship, and rooting his discussion firmly in the Scriptures themselves, his account is unique in its approach, thorough in its development, compelling in its argument, and timely in its arrival. I recommend it highly.
