About the Author

"A magisterial biblical theology. . . . A deep, detailed and consistent theological vision."--A. K. M. Adam, Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"The book is a robust constructive proposal for understanding the fundamental structure of the Scripture. . . . Kinship by Covenant should be read by biblical scholars concerned to approach the Bible as Scripture and also by theologians who would--and should--be scripturally informed."--Leroy Huizenga, Bulletin for Biblical Research

"A useful volume on biblical covenants."--J. W. Wright, Choice

"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

"Learned and well-written."--Jon D. Levenson, Journal of Religion

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

"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

"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

"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
