Christians are people of the new covenant made by Jesus’ death on the cross. But what exactly is a covenant?

And how does Christ’s new covenant fullfil and complete all the other covenants that God made with his people in the Old Testament?

This gripping and highly readable book gives us a sweeping overview of the Bible as it charts the different “deals” that God has made with people in Scripture. It shows how the covenants with Abraham, David, Moses and others all foreshadow the new covenant to come in Jesus, and it helps us see with greater clarity the plan of God as it unfolds through the Bible story.

With practical application, and careful, generous discussion of some contentious issues in Christian thinking, this book will help believers of every stage get to grips with this central theme of the Bible.
