Publisher's Description

The Covenant of the Torch made with Abraham is the most significant among all the covenants in the Bible. Why? It's the most detailed yet condensed summary of God's divine administration for redemption that outlines the work of restoration of His godly people and holy land.

In this book, Rev. Abraham Park brings to life the Covenant of the Torch, and helps us to understand—accurately, and in chronological detail—692 years of redemptive history starting from Abraham, including the great exodus, the wilderness journey and the conquest of Canaan.

Just as his best-seller The Genesis Genealogies has helped readers to better understand the time frames and relationships in the Book of Genesis, Rev. Park now helps us to carefully study the books of Exodus up to Joshua, and to realize what those events and participants tell us regarding God's larger plan. This book offers:
  • A detailed chronology of 692 years from Abraham to the Israelites' conquest of Canaan.
  • The first ever map of all 42 camp sites in the wilderness.
  • Color photos of the locations in the wilderness journey.
  • A theologically sound method of viewing God's Word through the perspective of God's administration in the history of redemption.
  • Wisdom and insight on how to overcome the spiritual "wilderness" in our lives of faith today.
Despite periods of spiritual darkness, unbelief, complaining and grumbling by the people of God as they wandered in the desert, we see God's faithfulness in fulfilling His Word and the Covenant of the Torch. And by understanding the chronological flow of the biblical events in a systematic manner, we gain a much broader and deeper grasp of God's plan of salvation.

This title is part of the History of Redemption series which includes:
  • Book 1: The Genesis Genealogies
  • Book 2: The Covenant of the Tourch
  • Book 3: The Unquenchable Lamp of the Covenant
  • Book 4: God's Profound and Mysterious Providence
  • Book 5: The Promise of the Eternal Covenant

Author Bio

Rev. Abraham Park
May 17, 1928 - December 17, 2014
  • Born in Sariwon, Korea
  • B.A. in Corporate Management from Kookmin University, Korea
  • M. Div. from the Presbyterian General Assembly Theological University, Korea
  • Honorary D. Min. from Lael College and Graduate School, USA
  • Honorary D.D. from Faith Theological Seminary, USA
  • Honorary D.D. from Knox Theological Seminary, USA
  • Former Moderator of the Hap-dong Conservative General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Korea
The late Rev. Abraham Park founded Pyungkang Cheil Presbyterian Church, which currently consists of 70,000 members. His great spiritual legacy continues with his nine published volumes of the History of Redemption series and the 300 churches he had established worldwide.

In the early part of his 56-year ministry, Rev. Park spent 3 1/2 years of solitude in a cave atop Mount Jiri, where he devoted day and night to the Bible and prayer. Like the fathers of the early church, Rev. Park's ministry was not founded upon his knowledge acquired from theological discipleship, but upon his life of piety and faith. His insights into the Bible, which he obtained through the powerful illumination of the Holy Spirit, were materialized into the manuscripts that would later become the book series called God's Administration in the History of Redemption.

He attested with all his heart and soul that "the Bible is the living Word of God." As a bastion of conservative Reformed faith, he firmly taught that the Word of God is inerrant, infallible, and inspired by the Holy Spirit. Having read the Bible over 1,800 times, he is widely respected for his dedication, charisma, and unrivaled adeptness in biblical exposition.

His Bible-centered ministry reached fruition through his congregation whose lives are centered on the church and the Word of God. Their service and dedication for the church, which is the body of Christ, has left indelible impressions on many theologians and ministers from all over the world.

    This book is life changing, and will be remembered as history changing point of Christianity. The map of the wilderness journey and all chronologies accurate are incredible. We need the Word of God and prayer not a theory.

    Joyous M.
    Rev Abraham Park, by his incisive writing, interweaves the central theme of Scripture that of Gods redemptive plan and the working out of His plan right after the Fall of Man with the history of Israel. By his vivid linkages of the past, present and future evidenced by a profusion of bible verses, he infuses the reader with a sense of immediacy that the todays believers are on a similar journey towards the Promised Land (Heaven). Just like the Israelites, believers are to come out of Egypt ( the world) by the blood of Jesus, the Passover Lamb of God; embark on the Exodus and the wilderness journey with its 42 camp sites and to arrive in spiritual Canaan to be with our Creator God and Father. Thus, each of the 42 camp sites is to be studied for its highly relevant lesson. This book has the worlds first map of all 42 camp sites researched and illustrated by Rev Abraham Park. Highly recommended for all laymen and theologians alike.
