Excellent book. Took me a while to read as it’s dense. After reading this, I wish to learn more about God’s covenants with His people. ( )

Epigraph
The idea of covenant is fundamental to the Bible's story. At its most basic, covenant presents Go's desire to enter into relationship with menand women created in his image. This is reflected in the repeated covenant refrain, "I will be your God and you will be my peopple" (Exodus 6:6-8; Levtiticus 26:12 etc.). Covenant is all about relationship between the Creator and his creation. The idea may seem simple; however, the implications of covenant and covenant relationship between God and humankind are vast . . . -- Alistar I. Wilson and Jamie A. Grant
Dedication
First words
[Preface] One of the dangers of writing a long adn detailed book on the biblical covenants is that it beomes potentially inacccessible to those who are looking for a more succinct treatment of the subject.
The purpose of this book is to demonstrate how central and foundational "covenants" are to the entire narative plot structure of the Bible.
