The first of two volumes, this study explores the two common grace covenants: the Adamic and Noahic. The second volume will examine the special grace covenants: the Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic, and New covenants. The volumes present the covenant as an expression of the nature of God, and show a paradigm of activity by which God works in covenantal relations, first to create the world and then, through a redemptive program after the fall, to redeem what was lost.

The first volume of Niehaus s Biblical Theology focuses on the common grace covenants of the Bible (the Adamic and Noahic) and what he offers his readers is a culmination of a lifetime of reflection and study. This work must be taken into account in all future thinking about the important theme of covenant. All students of the Bible and theology will benefit from Niehaus s insights that build on and advance previous research on the topic.
Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
This first volume of Niehaus s Old Testament theology is a fresh and refreshing study of covenantal theology, which engages ancient near eastern parallels informatively and corroboratively. His interpretive work with the text hardly leaves a stone unturned, and he does theology with an awareness that this testament is only one of two. The reader will be challenged to re-think earlier paradigms as the covenants unfold with new insights into God s master plan of grace.
C. Hassell Bullock, Franklin S. Dyrness Professor of Biblical Studies Emeritus,
Wheaton College; pastor, Warren Park Presbyterian Church, Cicero, IL
Niehaus brings to culmination his lifelong study of Ancient Near Eastern covenants and their importance for understanding biblical covenant as the foundation to biblical theology. He contends that Scripture in its entirety and God s relationship with human life from creation are covenantal in nature. By showing a pattern in God s covenantal designs, he demonstrates the cohesive message of the Bible. Every scholar and pastor will benefit from this refreshingly new and lively written approach. --Kenneth Matthews, professor of divinity, Old Testament, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University
