Revisiting the important topic of covenant fulfillment, Reformed theologian David Holwerda argues that God’s promises to Old Testament Israel cannot be understood apart from Jesus Christ. Based on careful exposition of key New Testament texts—including a significant in-depth study of Romans 9:11—in dialogue with a wide variety of interpreters and theologians, Holwerda maintains that the Old Testament promises of God find their complete fulfillment in Jesus Christ and the church.

Bibliotheca Sacra

This is a volume that must be studied by every budding New Testament student and should be seriously perused by all mature scholars in the field.

Calvin Theological Journal

A significant contribution to the evangelical debate over how best to understand Jesus’ fulfillment of the Old Testament . . . Worth buying, reading, and keeping handy for future reference.

Christianity Today

Here is biblical theology at its best: promise and fulfillment finding consummation in an eschatological certainty that is both universal and particular.

International Bulletin of Missionary Research

An outstanding evangelical study, this book is a careful, thorough, and conciliatory analysis of the relationship between Judaism and Christianity that counteracts the view of many theologians today that both faiths are equally valid, or even that they are two among many valid religions. Clearly written and logically argued, this book would make an excellent addition to libraries where church members have contacts with Jewish people.

Librarian’s World (Evangelical Church Library Association)

Holwerda’s is a considerable accomplishment. It makes a valuable contribution to the field which scholars of other traditions will want to take into account in their future work . . . He writes in a lively and open style that engages the reader at the same time as it illumines what are immensely complex questions.
