In this classic work of covenant theology, respected theologian and Bible scholar O. Palmer Robertson memorably and deftly defines a biblical covenant as “a bond in blood sovereignly administered.” His careful journey through the covenants of the Old Testament seeks to lay a solid foundation for unravelling the complex question of the relationship between the two testaments. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of the distinctive, coherent message of the Scriptures as they explore the significance of God’s covenants and the covenantal role of Christ.


“I now know where to look for a clear, thorough and fair-minded exposition of this great subject.”

—Derek Kidner

“Robertson has achieved a rare balance of clarity and simplicity while interacting with other viewpoints and incorporating the insights of modern scholarship. . . . Many Bible students long for a readable and reliable book that gives an overview of the whole Bible. This is it!”

—John H. White, Bible Newsletter

“Clearly written. . . . [This book] should prove of substantial help for anyone wishing a better understanding of the covenant concept as a central thrust of the biblical message.”

—R. O. Zorn, Vox Reformata
