Book plus Workbook set! In this volume MacCarty offers a brilliant defense of the fundamental unity of the Scriptures.
Writing with passion and careful thought, he begins by demonstrating that the fundamental character of God's covenants with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Israel was determined by the DNA of the new covenant. (Jeremiah 31)
Popular claims about the old and new covenants have diminished the gospel and narrowed the faith and spiritual life of millions of Christians. Those claims have introduced confusion about what it truly means to “keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”
“Skip MacCarty has caught the spirit and the intent of the covenants and their relationship as well as anyone I know. The American evangelical church tends to build its theological structures on the basis of Paul’s polemical statements about the law, sometimes without sufficient reference either to the polemical nature of those statements or the doubt those perspectives might cast on the integrity of Moses and the prophets, or perhaps even God Himself.
“This is one of the most important books available about the relationship between the gospel, the law, and the Sabbath.” –Norman R. Gulley, research professor in systematic theology, Southern Adventist University
“I consider this to be one of the best treatments on the old and new covenants. The work is well-documented and yet straightforward. It is clear, forceful, biblical, cogent, lucid. And MacCarty’s writing style meets a wide audience, from scholars to laity.” –Richard Davidson, J. N. Andrews professor of Old Testament exegesis, Andrews University
“This is a must read for people interested in this all-important subject.” –George R. Knight, professor of church history, Andrews University
