This is a book about God’s jealousy for his integrity, his passion to be believed, on the basis of his words alone. Throughout Scripture God expresses his determination to be known as the God who keeps his words. He has resolved that every person and nation will see and confess that all his words are reliable down to every last syllable, jot, and tittle. Learning to trust a God who is sovereign and in control, especially in the ache and throb of life, means hanging on to the conviction that everything he says is utterly dependable.


Knowing that God’s words are trustworthy and living it out can be two different things though, so as well as laying out the theological foundations, Layton MacDonald Talbert explores the practical applications. What does trusting God’s words look like in real life and how has it played out in the experience of God’s people? Let Talbert show you how in tracing the reliability of God through history we can learn to trust him with the future.

Hermeneutically nuanced. Theologically sound. Pastorally sensitive. Layton Talbert offers both the church and the academy a valuable service here. I heartily recommend it to God’s people as an antidote to unbelief in God’s Word.

… does not merely list the usual prooftexts (though there’d be nothing wrong with that!) and draw out their implications; no, he demonstrates in concrete text after text within Scripture that God’s words are trustworthy. Talbert not only trusts God’s words, he models that truth by rooting it in careful examination of those words.
