Overview

Since biblical times, covenants have been a part of everyday life. Simply put, they are promises, agreements, or contracts. But how do they translate into faith and the reading of Scripture? Are covenants merely elements of a narrative? Or do they represent something more? And what are the eternal implications of “cutting” a covenant with God?

In Introducing Covenant Theology, author Michael Horton unwinds the intricacies of crucial covenant concepts, showing how they provide a significant organizational structure for all of Scripture. They give us a context in which to understand the voices and message of the biblical narrative. They provide life with a goal and history with a meaning.

Whether you’re a pastor, ministry leader, or layperson, Introducing Covenant Theology will give you a new understanding of covenants and covenant theology, providing a framework for an important theological concept.

The Logos Bible Software edition of Introducing Covenant Theology is designed to encourage and stimulate your study of the Bible.

In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about the subject matter, making this collection ideal for studying and interpreting the Bible.

Praise for the Print Edition

A masterful survey of the covenantal frame of God’s self-disclosure in Scripture. For serious students it is a winner.

J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College

A rigorous and articulate defense of a traditional view of covenant theology. Horton’s federalist emphasis gleans from well-established Reformed writers while adding his own highly readable and insightful commentary.

Bryan Chapell, distinguished professor of preaching, Knox Theological Seminary

Horton has brought covenant theology to life in a way which engages modern thought and appeals to contemporary students and pastors alike. His book is a clear guide to an essential topic.
