Those who are most familiar with the Bible, and who have already given most time to its study, have largest desire and largest expectation of more knowledge through its farther study. And, more and more, Bible study has come to include very much that is outside of the Bible. Nor are these well-worked fields, by any means, yet exhausted. More still remains to be gleaned from them, each and all, than has been gathered thence by all searchers in their varied lore.

Shelves: covenant If ever you want to know the history of Covenant, this is you book. It a century old but covers the whole world it seems.

The Bible, as a book highlighting the covenants between God and humanity, does not make an effort to explain the concept of covenant because practically all ancient cultures had what could be called a covenant worldview.
How the Western Church needs to rediscover this mentality! Any reader who can get through the user unfriendliness of this book will discover a treasure that will help to illuminate the nature of our relationships with God--and with one another.

The consequence of this covenant was to play out in both the immediate and subsequent generations.
