How much do we know about God? Are we merely supposed to worship God but not know Him? The prophet Isaiah instructs us to "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near" (55:6). Yet how does God, who cannot be seen with the natural eye, relate to humans? God's chosen way of restoring relationship with His creation is covenant. With the book of Genesis as his starting point, Dick Bernal, founding pastor of Jubilee Christian Center in San Jose, California, creates a vivid portrait of God's redemptive plan for His people by examining covenant as it unfolds through biblical history and into our lives today. Through nearly thirty years of pastoral ministry, Bernal has discovered that those who understand covenant possess a strong and trusting faith in God, and he has a passion to instill in believers a resounding affirmation of their rightful position in Christ, the ultimate consummation of God's covenant. In this in-depth yet accessible exploration of God's agreements with His people, he offers readers a biblical way to understand God's dealings with humanity and practical, faith-changing principles for applying this fresh understanding to their lives.
DICK BERNAL and his wife, Carla, founded Jubilee Christian Center in San Jose, California, with six people in 1980. In 25 years, the church has grown to more than 14,000 members from all nationalities and backgrounds. He has spent nearly three decades pastoring, training ministers, and reaching nations through media and missions work. Bernal is a remarkably gifted teacher who leads people through the truths and mysteries of the Bible with incisive clarity. In addition, he is a popular conference speaker in the United States and abroad, as well as a noted author and leading authority on spiritual warfare and city taking.
