“Reading this clear and extremely well illustrated book, I was very struck by the fact that if I could get a good grasp of this one word ‘Covenant,’ then it's like an axe blade that enables me to open up not just every book of the Bible, but every chapter. I pray that many will internalise this outstanding tool of Biblical understanding.”See All

“No category captures the flow of the biblical narrative and its developing storyline better than that of ‘covenant.’ Nick Howard's engaging and practical book shows how the great covenants of the Bible work for ordinary Christians. Highly recommended!”See All

Christians are people of the new covenant made by Jesus’ death on the cross. But what exactly is a covenant?
And how does Christ’s new covenant fullfil and complete all the other covenants that God made with his people in the Old Testament?
This gripping and highly readable book gives us a sweeping overview of the Bible as it charts the different “deals” that God has made with people in Scripture. It shows how the covenants with Abraham, David, Moses and others all foreshadow the new covenant to come in Jesus, and it helps us see with greater clarity the plan of God as it unfolds through the Bible story.
With practical application, and careful, generous discussion of some contentious issues in Christian thinking, this book will help believers of every stage get to grips with this central theme of the Bible.
