The Whole Counsel of God, Volume 1: God’s Mighty Acts in the Old Testament

  • Author: Richard C. Gamble
  • Series: The Whole Counsel of God
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 752

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

This volume recounts God’s mighty acts in the Old Testament. It discloses the theology of the Old Testament within the organic, progressive, historical development of the Bible. Gamble blends a survey of the entire Old Testament with discussions of topics as diverse as the canon, days of creation, faith and reason, covenants, the Ten Commandments, Old Testament ecclesiology, the nature of God, justification, and Old Testament apologetics.

A very comprehensive theological project, embracing the disciplines of biblical theology, historical theology, and systematic theology. Nothing comparable in scope has been done in the last hundred years within the circles of Reformed orthodoxy. I’m convinced that Rick Gamble is the man to do this job. With a doctorate from the University of Basel and an international reputation as a Calvin scholar, Rick has a formidable grasp of theological issues. His theological convictions are thoroughly biblical and Reformed. He’s also a humble man of God who can write winsomely to the hearts of many sorts of readers. I hope this work has wide distribution and great influence in this time of theological confusion.

—John M. Frame

Very few people living today are as capable as Richard Gamble at grasping and expressing the theology of the entire Bible. His work represents decades of reflection on interpretive issues that have perplexed scholars for over a century. He bridges the gap many have identified between traditional systematic theology and biblical theology. He devotes himself in helpful ways to the unity and diversity of biblical revelation. Yet, throughout this work, he penetrates beyond scholarly concerns to life issues that every believer faces. I highly recommend this book.

The Whole Counsel of God, Volume 2: The Full Revelation of God

  • Author: Richard C. Gamble
  • Series: The Whole Counsel of God
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 1,144

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

Following the first volume—God’s Mighty Acts in the Old TestamentThe Full Revelation of God examines the nature of New Testament Scripture, introducing New Testament authors and their writings. Gamble covers the doctrine of God, soteriology, ecclesiology, and anthropology and concludes by presenting a biblical philosophy of life and a defense of Christianity.

“A very comprehensive theological project, embracing the disciplines of biblical theology, historical theology, and systematic theology,” writes John Frame. “Nothing comparable in scope has been done in the last hundred years within the circles of Reformed orthodoxy.”

Dr. Gamble’s new volume in the Whole Counsel of God series is a comprehensive, scholarly treatise on New Testament theology. Following in Paul’s footsteps in Acts 20:27, Gamble continues to explore the whole counsel of God in this second volume. In a field dominated by higher-critical methodologies, Gamble’s work is a breath of fresh air; his approach is biblically faithful and engaging. This work will certainly prove helpful in advancing the kingdom.

—John MacArthur, President, The Master’s University and Seminary

This volume is a welcome return to respect for God’s Word—and not in part, but the whole. . . . This wonderful volume will help move Scripture’s glorious, life-changing testimony from the printed page to the minds and hearts of all who consult it.

—Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary

The fruit of decades of scholarship, teaching, preaching, fellowship, and life in Christ, this continuation of Professor Gamble’s survey of God’s mighty acts is impressive. The author provides amazing and sweeping vistas of the forest without neglecting the trees. This volume will reward patient reading and rereading.

—Michael S. Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

The Whole Counsel of God, Volume 3: God’s People in the Western World

  • Author: Richard C. Gamble
  • Series: The Whole Counsel of God
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2021
  • Pages: 1,216

Richard Gamble’s three-volume Whole Counsel of God explores the relationships between exegesis and hermeneutics and between biblical, systematic, and historical theology for the glory of God and the enrichment of his church.

Having closely studied the Old and New Testaments in his first two volumes, Gamble turns to examine how the church has handled God’s holy Word throughout two thousand years of unfolding history in the West. In continuity with the rest of this work, the final installment presents a study of apologetics as well as practical application—integral parts of the whole counsel of God. Readers will follow the development of systematic theology in its context and, learning from the church’s past mistakes, be better able to defend it to the world.

Detailed and well organized, volume three of Whole Counsel of God is packed with instruction on the history of theology, on church anthropology, and on notable Christians throughout history. The breadth and depth of the information this book provides make it an excellent reference source for any classroom, library, or office.

Following the exposition of biblical theology in the first two volumes of The Whole Counsel of God, Dr. Gamble’s third volume surveys Christian thought from the classical Greek period to the present day. This important volume accomplishes three major feats. First, the author’s study of historical theology and philosophy will serve as a masterful encyclopedic reference work on thinkers from Aristotle to Zwingli and beyond. Second, throughout the book, his interfacing of the traditional loci of systematic theology at various junctures reflecting the time period just studied is ingenious and immensely helpful. And third, his treatment of modern and postmodern thought provides a valuable foundation for philosophical apologetics. For me, this volume is the capstone of the three-volume set and is worth the price of the set all by itself.

—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
