"Both well-written and exhaustive, this impressive work will fascinate readers with New Testament truths about God's unyielding covenant with his chosen, fallible people."-David Noel Freedman -- David Noel Freedman "Scott Hahn opens new vistas, chases down old haunts, and leads us to a fuller, deeper, and more penetrating understanding of covenant. Until we get 'covenant' right, we simply don't understand the Bible. When I think of the word 'covenant,' I think of Kinship by Covenant. When I have any questions about 'covenant,' this is the first book I will turn to for ever and a day."-Scot McKnight, North Park University -- Scot McKnight "At last Scott Hahn's Kinship by Covenant is published! Maintaining a masterful command of the data on biblical and ancient near eastern covenants, the work exposes how, for over a century, biblical scholarship lost sight of the covenant as a kinship-forging ritual. Richly documented, theologically profound, the book will prove an invaluable resource in Old and New Testament study."- Gregory Yuri Glazov, Seton Hall University, Immaculate Conception Seminary -- Gregory Glazov "Kinship by Covenant is thoroughly researched and lucidly argued. Those with a serious interest in a biblical theology of covenants will not want to miss Hahn's contribution."-Brandon D. Crowe, Westminster Theological Journal -- Brandon D. Crowe Westminster Theological Journal "Learned and well-written."-Jon D. Levenson, Journal of Religion -- Jon D. Levenson Journal of Religion
