From Creation to the Flood is the first volume in
Unfolding Covenant History, a series that will include Old Testament
history syllabi written by the late Professor Homer C. Hoeksema and
additional syllabi being written by Professor David J. Engelsma, his
successor as Professor of Dogmatics and Old Testament at the Theological
School of the Protestant Reformed Churches.
Prior to the publication of this series, mainly seminarians were able to
benefit from this valuable material. Recognizing the great potential for
the edification and comfort to all of God's people, the Reformed Free
Publishing Association has undertaken the publication of this work in a
series of hardcover volumes at the rate of approximately one per year
under the editorship of Mark H. Hoeksema, Professor Hoeksema's son.
The unique feature of these volumes, which distinguishes them from other
such writings, is their emphasis on the theme of God's covenant of grace
as the unifying principle of Old Testament history and of the very gospel
itself. The appreciation for this truth by the reader will grow during the
unfolding of the meaning of the covenant as history progresses through the
books of the Old Testament.
Volume I covers Genesis 1:1 through Genesis 6, a small portion of the
scriptures, yet a period that encompasses 1,650 years of biblical history.
In this volume Professor Hoeksema shows that the "book of beginnings" has
a significance that holds for God's people today and endures to the end of

"These very readable volumes are a veritable treasure
store into which, when the believer dips, he will surely increase his
spiritual wealth" (The Outlook).
"With my wife and family I spent two weeks in St. Ives
in Cornwall for our vacation, During that time I read Unfolding
Covenant History, vol. 1. It made the holiday for me. Do you have
volume 2 in stock? If you have would you please send it to me? ... I look
forward to hearing the tapes of the coming Lord’s Day ..." - England
"I have started Hoeksema's Unfolding Covenant History.
I have finished the first volume and am in the middle of the
second. It is a work with very deep theology and a good and
detailed overview of sacred history!" - Hungary
