5 Stars from a Calvinistic peerspective; two stars from a Biblical perspective. Jan 18, 2007
Richard Booker in this book approaches the Bible from a Calvinistic, charismatic, and Premillennialist view point. This is seen when he states on p. 77, that a Christian has been given supernatural faith and that it is impossible for a person to fall away from the blood covenant. To support this he changes the author's meaning of Hebrews 6:4-6 quoted from the KJV, "...if they should fall away....". The Greek of the original language as translated by George Ricker Berry should read, "and who fell away (past tense)." Thus a distinct possibility of apostasy and not just a hypothetical thought which is impossible. Booker states that humans inherit Adam's sin (p. 92, 96), implying total depravity thus requiring God to operate directly on the hunman heart which becomes God's faith given to the sinner and not the faith of the believer.
Booker also states that the Jews will rebuild the literal Temple in the latter days just before the return of Jesus Christ (p. 64), whom he renames "Jeshua Hamashiah" (p. 84).
While there are some good thoughts in the book, one must remember that Booker's approach to the Bible is through the preconceived theology of Calvinism and despensationalism.
Bible College Must Jan 4, 2007
Whether this is a required book for class or not this book explains the Blood Covenant in a very clear way.
A great must-have book! Mar 26, 2006
I enjoyed this book, but before I give its praises, I must list a complaint first. Then, I will be able to focus on the positive aspects of this book.
Interspersed throughout the book is Richard Booker's own theology, particular unconditional eternal security i.e. "once saved, always saved." I disagree with that theology and I believe the Bible says so as well (Hebrews 10:26, several others). Even Jesus said that not everyone who calls him Lord will enter the kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 7:21-28). And there are many atheists in the world who were once former pastors and/or believers in God. According to the Bible, they will not be in Heaven. And since this is not a thick book (153 pages with six pages of helpful study questions), his viewpoint distracts from the message of the book.
And the message of the book is the constant theme of the blood covenant throughout the Bible, and how the Old Testament laid the foundation for the work that Jesus would complete in the New Testament. Booker gives some background information regarding covenants and identifying them in the Bible. Also, he explained the Tabernacle and priestly garments, and how Jesus fulfilled these. Great stuff! But I particurly LOVED the way he compared the 5 types of Levitical sacrifices to what Jesus did here on earth. WONDERFUL! (I always knew there had to be more than just killing animals). There's also a great section on Jesus in the Passover, which Booker explains even more in his book "Jesus in the Feasts of Israel" (another must-have book). This book gave me a greater understanding of the unifying structure of the Bible.
So if you agree with Booker's salvation theology, you will love this book (maybe even give it 5 out of 5 stars!). If not, then you will still need to get this book! It is a great way to understand how the Old Testament and New Testament go together, how Jesus fulfilled what was put down in the early feasts and sacrificial system. This book definitely belongs in your library!
If you want to know your covenant rights as a Christian.... Oct 12, 2003
This is a must have book....A lot of us have heard the word covenant but we don't really understand want it really means to be in covenant with someone....
I took a class in our Ministry Training Institute that used this book as a text....and I have conscious ever since.....
I now know that I have covenant rights that I did not know of before and we only languish in our sins because we don't know our covenant rights in Christ.....
I would recommend this book highly if you want to know what a covenant truly is and we as Christian's fit into the Covenant picture....
Essential for Christians and curious non-Christians!!! May 27, 2001
If I would have read this book 10 years ago, I believe I would have been a Christian for 10 more years. Booker is a fantastic teacher, analyzing events in the Old Covenant [Testament] and how they forshadow and point to the New Covenant. This book explains the steps in the covenant, which so many people do not know about. I myself was one of those people. The book takes you through the old priestly customs and rituals and how they point to our High Priest, Jesus. It also answers questions like "Why couldn't anyone touch Jesus while he was ascending?" and "Why was Jesus called the Son of Man?" This book is an absolute must-have! Essential! Keep it with your Bible!
