Cross of Christ and The Covenants

The Cross and The Covenants – R. B.C. Howell, D. D. | Sprinkle Publications, 1994 reprint of 1854 and 1855 respectfully by the author, ISBN N/A. This small book contains two separate writings by the author Howell.


In his first book, The Cross one finds a thorough and an enjoyable read concerning the aspects of the Cross of Christ. In its ten chapters Howell asks the question – “By the Cross of our Lord Jesus …” as a prefix of his subject matter.

In his second book, The Covenants one finds his discussion of the covenants from the OT and the New Covenant concerning Christ Jesus. I enjoyed this book less. As so often with many during his era when one wrote concerning the covenants involving Israel they conclude that God has fulfilled them all. Their reasoning then was that Israel was scattered and that God is done with them thus carrying out the New Covenant now in Christ with the Gentiles. The problem with that is that Scripture does not support such teaching. Also, in 1948 Israel was reestablished as a nation, Jerusalem in 2018 it was announced as Israel’s capitol and has been so recognized by several nations as legitimate claim.

If you can find the first book I highly recommend it to you. The second book, I would tell you not to waste your money. However, I realize that I am being bias in my opinion for I do not think the author’s intent is supported by Scripture.
