Overview

What significance does the New Covenant have for life and ministry?

Foundational to the New Testament understanding of Jesus is Jeremiah's promise of a "new covenant"--that God will transform our hearts. In this important new study, David Peterson expounds Jeremiah's oracle and its influence on the New Testament, as well as the relevance of the New Covenant for life today.

Peterson demonstrates the practical implications of this new identity, especially for evangelism and the care of believers. As part of this renewed community, Christ-followers are empowered to point others to God's glory in everything. In Transformed by God, readers will find the biblical basis for New Covenant ministry and the power it provides.

Editorial Reviews

Carl R. Trueman
"Those familiar with the work of David Peterson will know what to expect from any book he writes: careful exegesis, attention to biblical theology, doctrinal synthesis and practical application. This book does not disappoint in any of these areas as David expounds the nature of the Christian life within biblical-theological context. This is Christian scholarship at its best--in the service of the church."
Doctor - Graham A. Cole
"David Peterson's study Transformed by God is a careful, highly competent, biblically faithful and pastorally astute treatment of Jeremiah 31:31-34 and its New Testament resonances, with the New Testament illuminatingly identified as new covenant literature. A fine example of scholarship that serves the church in general and pastors in particular. Highly recommended!"
