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.
Layton Talbert (PhD, Bob Jones University) is professor of theology at BJU Seminary. He has also authored books on the doctrine of divine providence (Not by Chance: Learning to Trust a Sovereign God) and a reader’s commentary on the book of Job (Beyond Suffering: Discovering the Message of Job).
This helpful study shows that the very integrity of God is at stake in the veracity of His words. They are true because he is true. There is great comfort in the truthfulness of God’s words!

Written in a very accessible style with helpful practical applications, this book (which includes an outstanding summary of the Kingdom of God on earth for worldview context), ought to be in the library of every Christian and re–read at least annually.

… a very useful work which is not a conventional defence of the complete trustworthiness of God’s Words encapsulated in Scripture, but more of a series of applications for believers. The book rests on the foundation that God’s word is true, and is to be trusted, and that faith is intellectual, emotional and volitional.

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.
