He Loves Forever


Thomas H. Olbricht


Despite popular opinion, the primary characteristic of God in the Old Testament is love. His love is intense and unremitting. His love is forever. This point can’t be stressed too much. The central focus of the Old Testament is God’s love.

Written in an easy-to-read and well-documented style, Dr. Thomas Olbricht’s book provides us with an inspiring look at the steadfast, immeasurable love God has for his children by examining the following: Creation, blessings through Abraham, deliverance in the Exodus, protection in the wilderness, promise through the covenants, love through the law, victory in the conquest, inheritance of the land, and Psalms, Proverbs, and the prophets. Dr. Olbricht writes, “The storyline of the Old Testament is easier to follow if one is familiar with the basic contours. This book is designed to identify certain foundational affirmations in the Old Testament and to trace the threads which bind the whole together.”


With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and as part of the National Endowment of the Humanities Open Book program, the Abilene Christian University's ACU Press and Brown Library partnered with the Disciples of Christ Historical Society (DCHS) to digitize 25 important backlist titles relevant to Stone-Campbell tradition, theology, and church history. This open access version is hosted by Atla Open Press in furtherance of the purposes of the grant.
