BIBLE and INTERPRETATION
COVENANT The Framework of God’s Grand Plan of Redemption Daniel I. Block This volume helps students of the Bible understand the big pic- ture of God’s covenants with humanity as they play out in both the First and the New Testaments. After fifty years of teaching and preaching around the globe, Daniel Block brings a lifetime of study and reflection on the First Testament and relationship with God to this comprehensive volume. The book focuses on God’s covenants as the means by which God has reached out to a fallen humanity. It examines the heart and history of God’s redemptive plan and shows why the covenants are essential for our understanding of the Bible.

“This is one of the most nourishing books of biblical theology that I have read. Every chapter is enriching, with illuminating exegesis from all over Scripture.” —CHRISTOPHER J. H. WRIGHT, Langham Partnership; author of The Mission of God “A creative and exhaustive study of covenant and covenant-making in the Bible. Block makes a compelling case for adopting new categories to describe this central aspect of God’s redemptive project. Consideration of Block’s proposal is imperative for anyone attempting to understand the biblical notion of covenant in the years to come.” —MICHELLE KNIGHT, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School “This book, the fruit of a lifetime of careful study of the Bible, expresses Block’s understanding of the way the en- tire Bible fits together. Anyone who loves the Bible will be richly satisfied by this banquet Block has set before us.” —JOHN N. OSWALT, Asbury Theological Seminary
