Overview

An important contribution to a canonical interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. God’s covenant with Israel is one of the most important themes of Old Testament scholarship: “I will be your God, you shall be my people.” Yet this has only rarely been the focus of a comprehensive study.

Professor Rendtorff explores the different ways the covenant formula is used in the Bible, its structural and theological functions, the connections between covenant and election.

Praise for the Print Edition

Rendtorff’s study of all the passages using the ‘covenant formula’ in biblical order is a helpful contribution to a synchronic reading of the Old Testament text… It will provide students with an excellent introduction to covenant theology in the Bible.

—John Barton, Oxford

This study is one of the most illuminating among those written on the covenant and the covenant formula… Rendtorff has produced a pioneering contribution on covenant theology which cannot be overlooked.
