Edmund Clowney was an influential pastor, theologian, and educator, both in church settings and several leading seminaries. The author of acclaimed works such as The Unfolding Mystery, Dr. Clowney completed How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments shortly before his death in 2005.



“Edmund Clowney has guided thousands of readers along the same path through the Old Testament on which Jesus led [two downcast disciples], replacing shattered dreams with confident joy.” —Dennis E. Johnson, Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

“Dr. Clowney’s admirable treatment should be greatly valued. . . . Expect your heart to be stirred, as well as your head cleared.” — J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia

"Edmund Clowney was the master of rich, heartwarming, doxological preaching, showing us that Christ is indeed the central theme of all the Scriptures. This wonderful book is both a fitting legacy for him and an inspiring introduction to his work for a new generation of Christians." — Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Grove City College, Grove City, Pennsylvania

"Dr. Clowney magnifies the wonder of the Bible's holy refrain: behold the Christ, the ultimate prophet, priest, and king! One's faith grows in direct proportion to one's grasp of the person and work of Christ. I cannot remember another book, outside the Bible itself, that has so enhanced my mental clarity and enflamed my heart's delight in my Savior.

"In this second edition two covenant heirs - grandfather Ed Clowney and granddaughter Eowyn Stoddard - combine their efforts to both embody and express covenant blessing in this glorious work that magnifies the Covenant Maker himself. THis is a treasure to be savored slowly and prayerfully. To read this quickly is to rob oneself of some of the sweetest tastes of biblical grace and truth that God's Word discloses about our beloved King and Savior." - Joe Novenson, Senior Teaching Pastor, Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee
