In The Promises of God, Dr. R. C. Sproul shows how God—the one true Promise Keeper—always keeps His promises. Drawing from his expansive theological background, Dr. Sproul addresses questions such as these: • How do we know that God will fulfill His promises to us? • What can we learn about God’s faithfulness as we wait for His promises to be fulfilled? • What was the agreement God the Father had with Jesus before the beginning of the world? • What does God’s covenant with Adam mean for us today? • What common covenant do atheists and other non-Christians participate in with God? • What does God’s covenant have to do with His forgiveness of our sins today? • Why did Jesus have to die to complete God’s covenant with us? God’s promises throughout history are the foundation for your relationship with Him. Here you will see how and why He keeps His promises to you, from now through eternity. Sproul goes on to define the different covenants God makes throughout redemptive history: the Covenant of Redemption, the Creation Covenant, the Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic Covenants, and finally the New Covenant. Faith has an expansive horizon. It is not merely about believing the right things. Instead, it inhabits every dimension of our personhood--how we think, how we behave, how we deal with our emotions and how we relate to others. We owe R.C. Sproul a great debt of gratitude for expanding the faith horizon in a way that will encourage many to actively grow their faith, their confidence in God. Christians who read this book will definitely be edified and encouraged. Intellectually solid reading. Full of lots of great examples and left me wanting more. Reminds us that God is very active in our lives and in the world. Great insights on what faith is and what it's not. I was given this book by Christian Review of Books.

R. C. Sproul in his new book, “The Promises Of God” published by David C. Cook shows us Discovering the One Who Keeps His Word . From the Back Cover:  What Promises Can You Believe? We hear a lot these days about promises.  Most of the time, we focus on promises to each other, rather than on God’s promises.  But as we all know, human promises fail time and again. In The Promises of God, Dr. R. C. Sproul shows how God—the one true Promise Keeper—always keeps His promises. Drawing from his expansive theological background, Dr. Sproul addresses questions such as these: ·      How do we know that God will fulfill His promises to us? ·      What can we learn about God’s faithfulness as we wait for His promises to be fulfilled? ·      What was the agreement God the Father had with Jesus before the beginning of the world? ·      What does God’s covenant with Adam mean for us today? ·      What common covenant do atheists and other non-Christians participate in with God? ·      What does God’s covenant have to do with His forgiveness of our sins today? ·      Why did Jesus have to die to complete God’s covenant with us? God’s promises throughout history are the foundation for your relationship with Him. Here you will see how and why He keeps His promises to you, from now through eternity. We make promises to each other however there are times when we cannot fulfill these promises.  Most of us try to fulfill as many as possible while others fail miserably at keeping just a few.  When God makes a promise it is to every person for all time only He calls it a covenant.   In fourteen chapters, beginning with, “The Meaning Of Covenant”  Dr. Sproul walks us through every covenant, what it meant when it was first made and what it means to us today.  In Chapter Fourteen, “The Christ Of The Covenant” Dr. Sproul  finishes by highlighting how the covenants all point directly to Christ.  Each chapter is set up with a built-in study guide at the end.  It is time we rooted ourselves firmly on the promises God has made.  Not only will it give us a sense of security it will also provide us with the ability to reach out to others to give them the same security.  ”The Promises Of God” is a must have book.  It is a must have for you because you will read it once, stash it on your bookshelf and come back to it again and again for refreshing.  It is a must have for your friends and family so that they can do the exact same thing.  We all need to learn and understand and who better than Dr. Sproul to help us with that understanding.  I recommend this book highly!
