FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States – August 5, 2022
Sonya Anderson’s new release, The Covenant Story, maintains best seller status.
In The Covenant Story, Sonya weaves biblical narrative with personal experience to create a relatable portrait gallery of the God who never stops loving, despite our failures.
Is God good, and can we trust him? The Bible answers this question with a story. The Covenant Story: Trusting the Love of a Faithful God is a retelling of the biblical narrative through God’s Bible covenants and his faithful hesed love. This is the story of God and humans in relationship. When people fail to keep their covenant vows, God sends Jesus to do the unexpected—he keeps his side of the covenant, and he keeps our side too. Through the Holy Spirit, followers of Jesus become ministers of a new covenant and ambassadors of God’s love. Written with beautiful prose, The Covenant Story envelops you with the knowledge that our faithful God doesn’t stop loving you, no matter what. He promises it, he’s proven it, and he’ll keep doing it. Forever. This is The Covenant Story—and it is the story we are invited to enter.

Kendrari – 5.0 out of 5 stars
Beautiful picture of God’s love and promise
This book is an easy read that paints the most beautiful picture via Sonya’s storytelling of God’s love for us and how our purpose is carefully thought out and meaningful. A great reminder of why we are here and how we can trust God’s covenant to us. This book breaks down Biblical stories and words to demonstrate what it means for us, here and now.
Jenna Hubin – 5.0 out of 5 stars
At one point Sonya mentions a “holy collision”, and that is precisely what this book was to me. The same Biblical story I have heard time and time again, was met with a perspective that stood in stark contrast to the legalistic way of thinking that has smothered my soul for decades. The constant pressure to uphold it all, when I knew I never could, so why continue? The farther I read, the more invited I felt – beckoned to glimpse the hope laid out on these pages. As someone who often approaches scripture, and works containing it, with deep a rooted resentment that dates back many years, I am grateful for this story. If you are like me, and faith feels like an unattainable longing, then may this invitation extend to you as well.
