Long ago, when Israel had become aware of her unique history, she began to collect and recount the saving acts of her God. She concluded that God had chosen her and brought her from the lowest level of society through slavery into the Promised Land. In the glorious days of Solomon, she had the leisure to contemplate and to write down what her God had done for her. She testified that her God was the God of promises who was faithful to his covenants.
The Promises of God beautifully and systematically records the responses from the leaders of this community of faith that were given to God's people. Though their answers were far from unanimous, they gave a guide to the generations of faithful people who have sought to live in covenant with their God in difficult times. Due to the perilous times in which we live, The Promises of God offers comfort as we consider the faithfulness of our great and holy God.
