Dr. Trumbull gave three lectures on the subject of the Blood Covenant to the Summer School of Hebrew at Episcopal Divinity School on June 16-18, 1885. The response he received from these lectures prompted him to put the lectures in book form and the result was 'The Blood Covenant'. <p>Tracing the blood covenant from the beginnings of time in all cultures ever studied by man caused Dr. Trumbull to conclude that 'this fact in itself would seem to point to a common origin of its various manifestations, in the early Oriental home of the now scattered peoples of the world' (Trumbull, The Blood Covenant, p 57). From the serious researcher to the Christian who is just trying to understand their faith a little bit better, this work stands as a monumental refrence in the literature of this most primitive rite that is the basis for what God did in both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant when He drew fallen man back to Him. <p>Without at least a working knowledge of the concepts behind the Blood Covenant, the Christian has no real knowledge of the great atoning work Jesus did for them on the cross and they certainly cannot know their rights, under the blood covenant, to what is theirs in the Kingdom of God because of their being partakers of the Blood Covenant with God Almighty through Jesus. <p>It is not an easy fictional read designed to be an evening or two of entertainment, but it is a highly informative book. One that has stood the test of time, being recognized as an authoritative work on a neglected subject.

Any evangelical Christian who hasn't read this paperback is still in first grade concerning their faith. It is an essential part of your library. BUT! The Nookbook is a joke. They scanned the original text which is not readable, and only scanned the top half of each page. Quality control? What is word for zero in the original manuscripts?Was this review helpful?
