These five volumes represent some of the best of O. Palmer Robertson's work. With thoughtful analysis, richly theological exposition, Robertson's writing provides pastors, teachers, and other church leaders a strong foundation upon which to lead and preach to their churches. With years of experience in the seminary context and the mission field, Robertson brings a unique perspective to the exposition of the Old Testament and its theology in light of Christ's coming and redemptive history.

Additional discussion of the place of Israel in history and in relation to the church provides for thoughtful reflection.

What is a covenant? Asking for a definition of "covenant" is like asking for a definition of "mother." A mother may be defined as the person who brought you into the world. That definition may be correct formally. But who would be satisfied with such a definition?

Scripture clearly testifies to the significance of the divine covenants. God has entered repeatedly into covenantal relationships with particular men. Explicit references may be found to a divine covenant established with Noah, Abraham, Israel, and David. Israel's prophets anticipated the coming of the days of the "new covenant," and Christ himself spoke of the last supper in covenantal language.

But what is a covenant? Robertson leaves no stone unturned as he explains the Bible's covenants. As he explores each covenant in depth, he helps us to see their unity, diversity, and place in the history of redemption.

I now know where to look for a clear, thorough and fair-minded exposition of this great subject.

The Christ of the Prophets

  • Author: O. Palmer Robertson
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages:432

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this abridged version of The Christ of the Prophets, O. Palmer Robertson captures the passion and purpose of their extraordinary writings.

After examining the origins of prophetism, the prophets' call, and their proclamation and application of law and covenant, Robertson devotes special attention to the biblical-theological significance of the exile. Viewing that phenomenon through the lens of several prophets, he draws our focus to the glorious restoration of God's people in Christ.

An unparalleled introduction to the prophetic writings: sober in its erudition, comprehensiveness, and sound judgment; spiritual in its sound theology that elevates the reader to praising God; and simple in its clarity of style.

The Christ of Wisdom

  • Author: O. Palmer Robertson
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 432

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

How do we walk in the way of wisdom? How should we respond to suffering? How can we cope with life’s frustrations and sorrows? How ought we to weep? How ought we to love?

The answers can be found in the great “how-to” books of Scripture—the Old Testament’s wisdom literature—but unfortunately, these books are frequently overlooked in biblical theology, despite their immense significance for God’s people. O. Palmer Robertson introduces the concept of biblical wisdom before providing a redemptive-historical analysis of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Lamentations. These neglected books offer the contemporary reader inspired insight (and a solid dose of godly realism) into every major realm of human existence: from love and intimacy to grief and calamity.

Robertson’s book is the best I know of on this subject. It focuses on what the Bible itself says about wisdom, particularly in the wisdom literature. I have learned much from it, and I hope that many others will as well.

The Flow of the Psalms

  • Author: O. Palmer Robertson
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 336

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

For centuries the book of Psalms has been read as a random collection of poems with no intentional arrangement. But is this a correct understanding? O. Palmer Robertson equips us to see a clear redemptive-historical progression that develops across the five books of Psalms. With the aid of charts in full color, he demonstrates how an intentional structure is indicated by elements such as the placement of acrostic psalms, strategic couplings of Messianic psalms with Torah psalms, and the grouping of psalms by topics.

If you love the psalms, Robertson will give you a better grasp of the whole Psalter and a deeper appreciation of each individual poem.

With his customary clarity and insight, Robertson presents a psalter that is at once theologically rich, historically relevant, and practically impactful.

The Israel of God

  • Author: O. Palmer Robertson
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 216

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Robertson offers a look at the questions: "Who is the Israel of God today?" and "What is their relationship to the Promised Land, and to Israel's worship, lifestyle, and future?"

Is the modern state of Israel the fulfillment of ancient prophesy? Are Jewish people saved by virtue of being God’s chosen people? These important questions affect our theology, evangelism, missions—even our politics. Palmer Robertson carefully and clearly takes us to the Bible to answer these and other questions. His masterful exegesis of Hebrews 7 and Romans 11 alone are worth the price of this book.
