Sealed with an Oath is a "must read" for anyone exploring the covenants of the Bible. This is largely because of its service as an organizing principle. Whereas other works survey the various biblical covenants and explore their similarities and dissimilarities, this work's focus on the appropriate linkages among the different covenants makes it especially useful in understanding how covenant may be read through the entire Bible.

Paul R. Williamson looks at the role of the covenant concept in Scripture and the meaning of this terminology. He then sets the idea of covenant in the context of God's universal purpose, and traces the idea through Noah and the patriarchs, the nation of Israel and the kingship of David. Lastly, he shows how the new covenant is anticipated in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New.

Williamson offers new insights into key texts and issues related to the theme of covenant. He is not afraid to challenge established positions. One example is his dual-covenant approach to God's dealings with Abraham.

His robust scholarship will be appreciated by scholars, lecturers and students in theology, ministers and all who have a serious interest in the covenant concept.
