I have been a Christian for many years. I have never heard or read anyone who so clearly communicates the importance and understanding of how our faith and obedience are inseparably linked, not compartmentalized. The trust-obey concept is well presented. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about growing deeper in their faith and in their desire to walk in holiness with our God.
David Herring5 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2005David HerringHafemann has done an extraordinary service to the church by publishing his user friendly summary of biblical theology. Having both the influences of Daniel Fuller and Meredith Kline in one biblical theologian is too much to ask for generally. But Hafemann weaves their broad and great themes into his own thought seamlessly. It is rare to find a seminary professor that cares as much about his exegesis of Scripture as he does about his exultation in God; but we find that in this book. This is a great book to use in small groups, bible studies, and personal edification in order to understand the Scripture as a whole.
