I can't think of anything more important for the preaching, teaching, and study of the Bible today than that students of that Word be immersed in the wonderful, beautiful, and powerful story of God's covenant. Mike Williams has made a valuable contribution to this end. . . . Drawing from a wide range of Reformed and evangelical scholarship, and rooting his discussion firmly in the Scriptures themselves, his account is unique in its approach, thorough in its development, compelling in its argument, and timely in its arrival. I recommend it highly.
Has not everything been said about covenant theology? One might have thought so, until reading Michael Williams Far As the Curse Is Found . . . the book combines four emphases in a remarkably fresh way: exegetical faithfulness, biblical-theological wisdom, awareness of contributions already made, and evangelistic and pastoral fire. I am not aware of anything quite like it. What a wonderful book!
When I used a prepublication copy to teach seminary students, they found the book to be reader-friendly and the story of the intimate connection between creation and redemption easy to follow. They were deeply moved by the power of the Bibles own covenant narrative. Some were surprised to be opened to new ways of looking at God, his world, salvation, and themselves. The book is clear, thoughtful, and faithful to Scripture.
Must reading for pastors and lay people alike. If you want to get the big picture of the whole Bible, take a look at this work.
