Individual Titles

The Israel of God in Prophecy: Principles of Prophetic Interpretation

  • Author: Hans K. LaRondelle
  • Publisher: Andrews University Press
  • Publication Date: 1983
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

In The Israel of God in Prophecy, LaRondelle allows the Bible to act as its own expositor by pointing to the New Testament as the basis for prophetic interpretation. Attention is given to the Old Testament prophecies concerning Israel and how the New Testament prophecies do not support the dispensationalist view.

This is the best counterargument on dispensationalism I have come across. It is a convincing argument both against the dispensationalist position and especially against hermeneutic. But it is more than that. It is an important contribution to the hermeneutic of eschatological material in Scripture, from which all eschatological traditions can benefit greatly. It presents a well-written, clearly formulated, and well-documented argument.

  • Author: George R. Knight
  • Edition: 2nd

What does it mean to sin? What is temptation? What is the law? What does it mean to “be saved”? What does it mean to “be perfect”? Writing in a highly engaging style, George Knight recalls his own early struggles with legalism in order to examine some of the most basic questions about salvation. Special features of the new edition include study questions at the end of each chapter, reference notes to sources, and topical and scripture indexes.

George R. Knight is emeritus professor of church history at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University. A prolific writer, he is the author of A Brief History of Seventh-day Adventists, Walking with Jesus on the Mount of Blessing, and Philosophy and Education: An Introduction in Christian Perspective, among many other works.

Our Creator Redeemer: An Introduction to Biblical Covenant Theology

  • Author: Hans K. LaRondelle
  • Publisher: Andrews University Press
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 208

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

Much is at stake in evangelical Christian theology when considering “the covenants”—Old Testament and New Testament. Theologically, how do we align the concerns of a popular conservative Christian culture that may rightly worry about the place of the Ten Commandments in the public square with a message that often seems to stress that those same commandments have all been nailed to the cross?

Is it all really so simple as “Old Testament = law” versus “New Testament = grace”? Between whom are these two covenants made? How are the two covenants the same? And ultimately, are they really different? These are not new questions in reformed theology and among evangelicals. But their answers are best found, not in the traditions of theological interpretation, but in a careful scriptural analysis of salvation history itself.

Thus, in this important new contribution to covenant theology, Seventh-day Adventist scholar Hans LaRondelle chronologically traces through salvation history the footsteps of the Creator-Redeemer in progressively revealing his covenant promises and his judgments. From a redemption-historical perspective, based on careful exegesis, the author outlines the unity and continuity of God’s covenants with his chosen people.

At a time when questions about the covenant again face us, this succinct volume is a source that makes an exceptionally authentic and thought-provoking contribution. This book effectively reaches beyond the tired, even exhausted, arguments on both sides of the struggle, challenging us all to look at this astounding subject in ways that truly shed light on our ongoing pilgrimage into truth.

—From the Foreword, Willmore D. Eva, editor, Ministry Magazine

This book makes a significant contribution by synthesizing and systematizing theology regarding the covenants from a perspective that is consistent with biblical teaching.
