By God, I Will
Full Product Description
One of the main reasons for this confusion is their handling of the word ‘covenant’, which is so fundamental to scripture. The two key questions are: how many covenants has God made with human beings and how many of these apply to Christians today?
Some say there is only one (‘the covenant of grace’) running right through scripture, though they might add a second (‘a covenant of works’) which applied only to Adam in Eden. Most think there are two (the ‘old’ and the ‘new’) corresponding to the Old and the New ‘Testaments’ (a synonym for ‘covenant’). Others claim to have found seven (though they usually call them ‘dispensations’).
This author believes there are five which are basic to the story of our redemption – the Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic and Messianic.
Only one of these is ‘old’ and therefore obsolete; only one is ‘new’ but endorses the other three. With this insight we can ‘rightly divide the word of truth’ (2 Timothy 2:15; NIV has ‘correctly handle’).

By God, I WillGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
A careful reading of the Old Testament soon reveals that the idea of Covenant is foundational for all Old Testament theology, and an understanding of Israel's relationship with Yahweh.
David Pawson has written this study—based on a series of talks—of the five covenants he finds enshrined in Old Testament texts; namely with Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and, the Messianic.
His first chapter is an explanation of the meaning of covenant, and his last chapter is a reflection on the relevance of the earlier covenants for Christians today. It is a fairly short, easily read book, and really only an introduction to the subject.
Pawson writes from an unashamedly evangelical standpoint and the book is aimed at the layperson. Because of that it is decidedly light in content—he encourages the reader to consult Scripture, but gives few Scripture references, seeming to prefer stories which illustrate his point!
However, that ought not to put off anyone interested in exploring the subject and, if you've read this, it should encourage you to look at he subject in more depth. For that a bibliography would have been a useful addition.
