Broken Covenant, Fallen World THE COVENANT OF WORKS The first of five volumes in the series, Covenants of the Almighty. The purpose of this series is to help ordinary Christians understand God's covenants at an easier reading level than most theology, the reading level of those who speak English as a second language. Collegiate language is minimal, colloquial idiosyncrasies are avoided, and illustrations can be universally understood. Difficult points are explained as simply as possible, sometimes from several approaches for readers who may not quickly grasp spiritual concepts. This series views the divine covenants through the lens of the New Testament, especially through the writings of the apostle Paul. The apostle's comments are taken as divinely inspired commentary explaining the true meaning of the text. Volume One examines the covenant God established with the first man in the Garden of Eden. For centuries this covenant has been described by theologians as a qcovenant of works.q The Covenant of Works is normally seen as a contrast to the Covenant of Grace that God established through Jesus Christ for man's salvation. Recent debates have questioned these distinctions. This book skips the debate, to avoid putting some readers on the defensive, while making a case for the validity and essential nature of the Covenant of Works. The first part of the book is a qSynopsis of Covenant Theologyq for readers who want an overview of the covenants or need to understand how to bring together the details described in later chapters of the series. This is a survey of main points of the covenants within their historical context. The second part of this first volume explains the history, meaning and application of the Covenant of Works, and its importance for a correct understanding of Biblical concepts such as the covenant, the fall of man into sin, the final judgment, redemption, Christ's role as Mediator and Last Adam, and Edenic themes in the promises of the new covenant in Christ Jesus.

Volume Four: Dawn of Heaven's Light (Summer 2013) The way into the kingdom of heaven is opened only through the death and resurrection of the King of heaven.
