"Relationship and fellowship are two key concepts in our Christian life. Relationship with God begins at the moment of Salvation and can never be broken. Fellowship with God can be interrupted when we sin. Understanding how the two are distinguished and how they are related is crucial to your Christian life. One does not have to agree with Anderson on every point to benefit greatly from this helpful book."

Dr. David L. AllenDistinguished Professor of Preaching, George W. Truett Chair of MinistrySouthwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas

"With outstanding scholarship and insightful exegetical and theological reflection, Dr. Anderson shows that God's way of relating to children has always been in terms of relationship and fellowship. Our relationship with God can never be lost but our fellowship varies with our faith and obedience. He demonstrates that the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants are paralleled by other Ancient Near Eastern covenants between the monarch and his servants. Abraham began an eternal relationship with God in the Abrahamic Covenant. However, in the Mosaic Covenant He provided the conditions for fellowship with God for those who are in relationship with Him, that is, are saved. The implications on our daily walk with Christ are significant."

Dr. Joseph DillowPresident Emeritus of BEE WorldAuthor of Final Destiny

"Dr. David Anderson's book, Relationship and Fellowship, is an unusual linking of easily accessible sermonic materials from a lifetime of rich preaching on the topic, and deeply detailed scholarly writing on the underlying exegetical and theological issues. In effect, the sermons in the first part of the book show practical application of the basic ideas; the second part of the book is like a Grand Footnote that explains that which informs the sermonic content.

The great contribution of Anderson's book is his understanding that the Torah, Yahweh's Law for Israel, was a gift to a Redeemed People to maintain their Fellowship with God rather than a series of encouragements and threats to an unregenerate community to establish their Relationship with God."

Dr. Ronald B. AllenSenior Professor of Bible ExpositionDallas Theological Seminary

"The important distinction between relationship to Christ and fellowship with him is generally lost in the thinking of the average Christian. Professor Anderson has in this work clarified the issue and in an engaging and persuasive manner. I highly recommend this book for saints of all ages and theological sophistications."
