Two Covenants

by Andrew Murray

This month's book is not only a popular CCEL download, but an audio version of the book has recently become available to CCEL members.

In this enlightening treatise, Andrew Murray explores the difference between two covenants--the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. Murray's discussion of covenants is instructive, describing the nature of a covenant, the difference between the two covenants, and the transition between them. His ultimate goal, however, is to show "what exactly the blessings are that God has covenanted to bestow upon us." And here Murray's spiritual insight and ability for profound teaching shines through. His "humble attempt" to instruct the believer can have a renewing and transformative effect. Two Covenants is thus a prerequisite for anyone trying to better understand either biblical covenants or one's own personal sanctification.
