Promises You Can Stand On Through Thick and Thin The Bible is filled with hundreds of what the apostle Peter called 'exceeding great and precious promises': definite, explicit declarations God has made that you can count on. In All the Promises of the Bible, Dr. Herbert Lockyer discusses the nature of God s promises---their substance . simplicity . surety . source . security . scope. Lockyer s in-depth look at the scope of God s promises arranges them in categories that cover the full array of human concerns, from the spiritual to the material and the corporate to the personal. As you come to understand God s promises and how they apply to every aspect of your life, you ll gain a trust in God that will sustain you through the worst of times and be your source of rejoicing in the best."
