Publisher's Description

Since biblical times, history is replete with promises made and promises broken. Pastors and teachers know the power of the covenant, and they know that understanding the concept of covenant is crucial to understanding Scripture. They also know that covenant theology provides the foundation for core Christian beliefs and that covenants in their historical context hold significance even today. But to laypeople and new Christians, the eternal implications of "cutting" a covenant with God can be complicated.

Now available in trade paper, Introducing Covenant Theology unwinds the intricacies of covenant theology, making the complex surprisingly simple and accessible to every reader. With keen understanding, careful scholarship, and insight, Michael Horton leads all believers toward a deeper understanding of crucial covenant concepts.

    It is impossible to read a Michael Horton book quickly. He tackles difficult theological challenges from a deeply-imbedded Reformed position and it is easy to get lost in his logic. With that understood, he should be read by truth-seeking believers. This book in particular is an excellent exposition of thought regarding God's covenant dealings with with His creation. Horton starts slowly, but of necessity, by explaining the nature of covenants in the ancient Middle East and demonstrates how the basic structure of those covenants can be used to shed light on the biblical covenants. Unless the reader has an historical bent, this part of the book is laborious. I caution you, however, to not abandon your journey through this material too quickly. For the one who "perseveres to the end" (Reformed reference intentional), that endurance will be rewarded. The book has many strengths to commend it. Horton gives comprehensive treatment to the differentiation and correlation between the covenants of law and promise. His explanation of the New Testament believer's responsibility to Old Testament law is a fitting conclusion. Although this book is not what I expected, Horton's work is well worth the investment of time and effort to read and digest.
