From the Inside Flap
In a culture in which unfaithfulness is rampant, God?s ?fierce, ferocious loyalty? toward us is difficult to imagine. And yet, through her characteristically warm and wise exploration of the Scripture, Kay Arthur will lead you into discovering the stunning truth of God?s covenant?and help you experience its revolutionary truth in your life.
The Bible reveals the covenant bond to be the highest personal relationship possible. In ancient times, covenants were solemn, binding agreements supremely honored above all others. Making a covenant represented an unqualified, total commitment of one person to another?unconditionally, totally, eternally.
As you follow the thread of God?s covenant woven throughout the Bible, you?ll discover the awesome privilege of getting to know the Lord as your Covenant God.

Regarding "life application", it runs deeply throughout this book, despite the comment above by an unhappy reader. This book may not give you a 5-step plan to a covenant with God, but it makes clear all the underlying priciples and requirements for Covenant. The application is internal, not external: simply put, it is about viewing God in the correct way so the correct behavior will follow.
The book is organized in an inspirational way: Kay Arthur's thoughts build on each other in a fashion to gradually accustom the reader to the ideas involved in Covenant. There is a lot of "back-and-forth" as far as Biblical history is concerned, but this adds a level of interest to the reading.
Kay Arthur includes a fair amount of Hebrew and Greek words, their meanings, and cultural significance: because of this, the book is quite educational despite its inspirational format. Of particular interest to me were the endnotes of each chapter: she lists all the Bible Verses and Bible Study Aides she refers to in the text.
I am quite a logical-minded person (I'm a Physicist) and appreciate the simplicity of linear thought when I can get it (!): this book is far from linear, however! Although the language of this book is very easy (quite informal and conversational in parts...that's Kay Arthur's style), the train of thought was not readily apparent to me. I had to read it a couple of times to glean all the information out of it. More artsy types would have no problem, I think. However, even for more structured temperaments, it is certainly a book worthy of a good "chew"!Read more ›
I have ordered five of these books for family and friends and will be ordering five more. Over time, I hope to give a copy to as many people as I can. This book will be a blessing for anyone who reads it.
Beginning with the Abrahamic covenant that God cut with Abram, Arthur traces the line through the Old Covenant and into the New one. But the book isn't just informative, it is also practical. In light of covenant, how shall we live? Kay instructs the reader on our obligation for living in a covenant with God.
