This is the first, and most referred to, Christian systemic theology to make clear for the Church the relevance of the continuing existence of the Jewish people to every aspect of its theology. The three volumes set out to correct a major and central deficiency in the field: that the continuing existence of Israel, the people of God and the people of Jesus, whose ancestors produced by far the largest part of the Church's Bible, and who have lived by the covenant of those Scriptures through the ages, has been either ignored or treated negatively. This theology was written to help the average Christian clarify and organize the basic concepts of God's holiness and love. The author shows how God's holiness requires humanholiness and how this combination is possible only in Jesus Christ.
