Each book in this series provides an in-depth look at a major recurring theme in the Bible and its lasting theological influence. The series is designed to enhance the reader's understanding of our biblical heritage and its relevance to faithful life today.
Covenant is a principal image used in both testaments to express the relationship between God and humans. McKenzie explores the theological concepts of election, faithfulness, obedience, and law as they relate to covenant in both Testaments and raises the importance of covenant as a link between Judaism and Christianity.
"This is the best comprehensive, up-to-date review of a most important biblical theme. McKenzie deals clearly and judiciously with the latest discussion and presents the history of covenant in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament in a way that will appeal to both Jews and Christians."
