The familiar idea of a covenant between God and His people is central to much of the literature of the Old Testament. Through analyses of the style, content, and language of biblical and extra-biblical documents, Dr. Hillers renders the complex idea of covenant comprehensible to the layman as he provides insights into such ideas as the love of God and the knowledge of God--both of which are intimately connected with Israel's concept of covenant.

Review quote

An unusually good book in which results of the best scholarship are summarized in a lucid, witty, and engaging way... For a short introduction to the idea of covenant in the ancient Near East and in the Bible, this book is perhaps the best available today. American Ecclesiastical Reviewshow more
