One of a small handful of books that significantly shaped how I think about God, or rather, how I think God thinks about me.

How the Western Church needs to rediscover this mentality! Any reader who can get through the user unfriendliness of this book will discover a treasure that will help to illuminate the nature of our relationships with God--and with one another. Jan 19, C. Gray added it Shelves: did-not-finish. It definitely proved what I wanted to know--that these were, in fact, ubiquitous--but after awhile I just didn't need any more examples.
Got the gist. Aug 31, Danielle rated it it was amazing. Although this book was a bit hard to get through at points, the wealth of information was astounding!! Understanding about blood covenant has deepened my faith and has given me more insight into exactly WHY Jesus had to die the way He did.
