The third edition of Martens's well-known study of Old Testament theology which has become a standard textbook at evangelical seminaries and bible colleges.

Exodus 5:22 - 6:8 reveals God's design for building his kingdom, a design with four components:1) Deliverance, 2) Community, 3) Knowledge of God, 4) The Abundant Life. From these components, Martens constructs a grid through which the entire message of the Old Testament can be read. God's Design presents an overview of the Old Testament all Bible students will find fascinating. God's design was articulated in the exodus, implemented in the pre-monarchy era, tested in the centuries of the kings, and reaffirmed through Israel's exile and return.
