9780300140972: Kinship by Covenant: A Canonical Approach to the Fulfillment of God's Saving Promises (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library)

While the canonical scriptures were produced over many centuries and represent a diverse library of texts, they are unified by stories of divine covenants and their implications for God’s people. In this deeply researched and thoughtful book, Scott Hahn shows how covenant, as an overarching theme, makes possible a coherent reading of the diverse traditions found within the canonical scriptures.

 

Biblical covenants, though varied in form and content, all serve the purpose of extending sacred bonds of kinship, Hahn explains. Specifically, divine covenants form and shape a father-son bond between God and the chosen people. Biblical narratives turn on that fact, and biblical theology depends upon it. With meticulous attention to detail, the author demonstrates how divine sonship represents a covenant relationship with God that has been consistent throughout salvation history. A canonical reading of this divine plan reveals an illuminating pattern of promise and fulfillment in both the Old and New Testaments. God’s saving mercies are based upon his sworn commitments, which he keeps even when his people break the covenant.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is the fruit of an immense amount of research in the contemporary study of the divine covenants in Scripture.  No one who takes up the challenge of reading it, whether scholar or not, will come away without being more astute in matters human and divine.  The thesis of the book is masterly in its basic insight: life lived under the biblical covenant cannot be separated from life lived in relationships shaped by family ties and terms.  It is the family which is central to the biblical view of life for the simple reason that the family is central to life itself."James Swetnam, S.J. - Pontifical Biblical Institute (Rome)
