Signs, laws, sacrifices, kings, priests: How do they all fit together? Alec Motyer answers with five lectures that intricately trace God’s covenant from its origins in the narrative of Noah and Abraham, through the establishment of the law, towards its climax in Christ. Journey through redemptive history and connect the dots for a greater glimpse of the salvation masterplan orchestrated by the promise–making, promise–keeping God.
Dr Alec Motyer (1924–2016) was a well–known Bible expositor and from an early age had a love for studying God’s Word. He was principal of Trinity College, Bristol and wrote many widely appreciated commentaries and other books.
This is all vintage Alec—clear, warm, stimulating, whimsical, God–exposing. If you want to understand and enjoy the Bible, read this book.

Motyer shows his readers the seamless unity of God’s redeeming work across the Old Testament and into the New Testament. This work certainly will introduce many to a lifelong study of covenant theology and fuel their praise of our covenant God.

I have a rule that goes like this: anything written by Alec Motyer is worth reading. Covenant Foundations is no exception to that rule. … Motyer clearly, simply, and helpfully walks you through Scripture tracing out how God makes and keeps his promises in his covenants.
