… passion and intensity, decades of study, deep theological reflection and serious polemical interaction, and even more, the heart of a believing theologian who knows he needs Christ and His Cross. If your prayer is ‘more love to Thee, O Christ,’ here is fuel for your devotion. Read and believe and worship.

I have been influenced by Dr. MacLeod’s writings for over forty years. No matter what the topic may be, one senses the precision of a pastor–theologian carefully analyzing his material to bring us to bow before a sovereign and gracious God, ‘lost in wonder, love and praise.’ Sure–footed, rich in biblical analysis, pastorally edifying, these ‘sound words’ provide a book to be read over and over.

Drawing on over 60 years of Biblical research, Donald Macleod is somehow able to magnificently and adoringly expound the mysteries of Christ with a skill which will not only educate, but draw his readers closer to the unfathomable realities of what God did in sending his Son.
