Covenant Lifts Our Horizon

“Covenant lifts our horizon from self-interest to the common good. There is nothing wrong with self-interest. It drives economics and politics, the market and the state. But there are certain things that cannot be achieved on the basis of self-interest alone, among them trust, friendship, loyalty, and love. Covenant really is a life-and-world-changing idea.”
