The original, recognized, authoritative resource for old-world covenants, by Henry Clay Trumbull.
The Blood Covenant is one of the least understood, and yet most relevant covenants for our understanding of God's dealings with man, throughout the Bible. This covenant of life & death spans the entire sacrificial system of the Old Testament, and is the basis for the Act of Communion in the Church today.
