Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Popular Bible teacher Arthur, cofounder of Precept Ministries, traces the idea of God's covenant from the Old and New Testaments to its meaning for people in the 20th century. She begins by reflecting on the first sign of God's covenant with humankind in the story of Noah and the flood. She then explores the ramifications of the covenant relationship between David and Jonathan, before focusing her attention on Jesus Christ as the mediator of the New Covenant. She notes, "A covenant relationship supersedes all other relationships. If you are in covenant with Jesus Christ, you are in covenant with One who is God." Using anecdotes from her own ministry experiences as well as a deep reading of Scriptures, Arthur explains the seriousness of making a covenant, especially in an age she sees as marked by casual commitments and broken promises. While readers will benefit from the depth of her study, her saccharine and manipulative style will put off many readers. For example, Arthur notes, "Beloved Christ laid down his life for you... His potential covenant partner, and you are to do the same."

From the Inside Flap

SOMEONE LOVES YOU. UNCONDITIONALLY. UNSHAKABLE, UNFAILINGLY. That Someone is God Himself. But how can that be possible? Why would God love you so? Because He has fashioned an unbreakable covenant between Himself and you. And He always keeps His promises. ?Everything God does,? says Kay Arthur, ?is based on His covenant.? And when you understand how thoroughly the dynamic concept of covenant permeates everything God says in His Word, and everything He does in our lives, you?ll come to experience one of the most stabilizing, most freeing truths you?ll ever know.

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.

I can't believe I'm the first to review this book. This is a must read for anyone serious about their relationship with God. Regardless of how long you have been a Christian or how many years you have studied the Bible, the study of covenant is like the bow on the package that holds it all together. I highly recommend this book for personal or group study.

Kay Arthur takes on the overwhelming task of explaining the meaning of the Covenant relationship believers have with God. She details the scripture surrounding this topic. It is a life changing concept that the Almighty God would desire even enter into this type of relatiohsip with us. It is a masterful book that deserves more than one reading.

This book serves two primary functions: to inspire and to educate. I have used this book as a guide for a Bible Study: it proved successful for both a group study and a 1-on-1 study.

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"!

This is an excellent companion to Kay's Precept upon Precept course on covenants. It opened my eyes to concepts that I was struggling with regarding covenants, and helped ground me even firmer in my faith in my Saviour Jesus Christ. Thanks Kay you are a blessing for us "new" Christians.

"Our Covenant God" was mentioned in our weekly Bible Study by our Pastor as we began the study of the covenant God made with man. Pastor said he reads it at least once a year. Well, I thought perhaps I should see what has our man of God so commited to reading this book. From the first page to the last it was like manna from heaven. Each chapter opened my eyes to the significance and depth of God's love for me and His unfailing commitment to my salvation; His unending grace that he would build into His contract and my daily life a way for me to understand and walk in His love and His power and understand His mercy towards me. I was born into a covenant. When I gave my life to Jesus Christ and was born again, God's covenant was again opened to me in a new and different way, When I sin, God His covenant covers me. Through communion His covenant reminds me of the price paid for my sin and salvation. Through the marriage covenant, I am not ony a bride of the church, but of my spouse. There is no highway in life I can turn to now and not realize my convenant relationship with God. Thank you, Kay Arthur, for making our covenant relationship with God so crystal clear!

Kay Arthur is a seasoned author with a thorough knowledge of scripture. I completed the workbook and watched the online videos for her Bible study Our Covenant God. I realized I had never really understood the importance of covenant. Kay's teaching sparked an interest in learning more on this topic. I bought the book to further my study and I was not disappointed. Men or women will find it useful. I challenge you to use this to open your heart to the beautiful plan God had when he cut covenant with his people.

Words fail me. I think this is one of the most important books we can read to begin understanding this staggering love God has for his children. Many fears are laid to rest and peace takes it place. Covenant is so huge and so wonderful and so comforting.
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.

Kay Arthur has put together a great book here. The truth of our covenant God is a theme that runs throughout Scripture, and yet so many people are unaware of 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.
