Do covenants or dispensations structure the biblical revelation? The historic conflict between Covenant and Dispensational theology has resulted in a neglect of biblical covenants in Dispensationalism. As a corrective, this book offers a variant of Dispensationalism – designated Covenantal Dispensationalism. Analyzing both ancient Near Eastern and biblical covenants, this work clearly demonstrates that the character of each dispensation is the sum of the stipulations of the operative covenants. Therefore, this book concludes that covenants structure the biblical revelation and that resulting structure is Dispensationalism.

The basic direction of the redemptive story line is forward and sequential. This movement reflects the hand-glove relationship between God’s relational intentions (covenants) and His administrative arrangements (dispensations). In less than 300 pages, "How Firm a Foundation" presents a clear and comprehensive display of this panoramic vista. Awareness of the reoccurring patterns and complimentary dynamics discussed here helps one avoid some significant theological missteps; particulary with regard to the rule of life for believers today.

As a 2nd year seminary student, I found this study invaluable in my studies. It was very well researched, and is a book that I have used over and over. I would recommend it to any budding theologian.
