In this concise booklet, John Murray examines how throughout all ages God redeems his people by means of his covenant of grace. Emphasizing the organic unity of God's successive covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and Christ, Murray explains how each differing covenant administration builds on those before it, in a progressive outpouring of God's saving revelation, culminating in Christ.
Murray's particular objective is to contribute toward "a more biblically articulated and formulated construction of the covenant concept and of its application to our faith, hope, and love."
Professor John Murray (1898-1975) was recognized in his own lifetime as one of the leading Reformed theologians in the English-speaking world. He spent most of his distinguished career teaching systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. A careful scholar, an eloquent lecturer, a moving preacher, and the author of many outstanding articles and books, Murray’s driving passions were to declare Christ’s Word, advance his cause, and bless his people.
