After studying the Doctrine of God, there is no other doctrine more important to the Christian than the manner in which God saves him. This is planned in eternity past in the Covenant of Redemption, an essential truth of the Christian Faith, the Bible and of Covenant Theology. Willard masterfully devotes an entire book to this covenant and explains how the Father, through the Son, in the power of the Spirit, provides for the salvation of his church.

Samuel Willard (1640-1707) was a reformed preacher of the Gospel in the old South Boston Church in New England, president of Harvard University, and one of the great Calvinistic teachers of his day.
The unparalleled and incomprehensible love of God to sinful man, displayed in the wonderful affair of his redemption and salvation, is the great thing celebrated throughout the Scriptures. This work is found in the covenant between the Father and the Son, called in theology, “The Covenant of Redemption.”
Willard clearly and biblically explains the Covenant of Redemption dividing the entire treatise into two general heads in order to explain the glorious mystery of this covenant. 1) The provision which God made for our deliverance before time in eternity, and 2) The things which are done in time for its actual accomplishment. From these two main points he covers a right understanding of what a covenant is, how the covenant is found clearly in Scripture, how this covenant was necessary in relationship to man’s salvation, and lastly, what the influence is which the covenant of redemption has to the covenant of grace, which is made with us. His final two chapters cover application by way of exhortation and consolation.
