The most definitive book on the Blood Covenant available. Jan 31, 2002
This book is based on a three lecture series that Dr. Trumbull delivered on June 16-18 in 1885 to the Episcopal Divinity School in Philadelphia, PA. That no other book in the past 117 years, on the subject of the Blood Covenant, has equalled or surpassed this book in thoroughness or in scholarship is mute testimony to this book's classic position as THE definitive book on the subject of the Blood Covenant. Dr Trumbull traces the origins of the Blood Covenant, as practiced worldwide, to an early Oriental home in ancient human history (p 57). Along the way, he has shown the development of this covenant from a crude form of uniting two humans or a human and a Divine entity in an unbreakabke bond to a highly stylized rite among the peoples of the world. This book is a must for every Pastor or teacher who wishes to understand the very Covenant that is the underpining of the Christian faith.
A classic text in blood covenants Nov 13, 2001
In researching the literature on blood covenants, the subject of my Master's thesis, I was struck by the dearth of scholarly research on this subject. Most books on this subject were rather shallow, with no real depth to them and little in the way of scholarly input. Dr. Trumbull's classic on the subject of the blood covenants was like a breath of fresh spring air in a very stiffling room. Here was the in-depth scholarship so lacking in the other works reviewed. It seems that no one, in the last hundred years or so has been able to out-perform this classic treatment of the blood covenant. It is not easy reading, but is full of the best scholarship I have found anywhere on this subject.
Thorough Discussion of Blood Covenants Sep 7, 2000
This author not only explains completely and thoroughly blood covenants in the Bible, but also explains blood covenants in different cultures. An in-depth look at blood covenants throughout history is explored. If you want a complete and concise book on blood covenants, this is it. It tends to be very wordy and is not an easy read. This is a book your reading to study, not enjoy or be ministered with.
