With a prolific pen, Trumbull authored several books that delved into theological and ethical issues of his time, one of the most notable being 'The Blood Covenant: A Primitive Rite and its Bearings on Scripture' - an anthropological study on the significance of blood covenants across various cultures and their implications for understanding biblical covenants. In this seminal work, Trumbull explores the ancient practice of blood covenanting and draws connections to the Christian concept of the New Covenant. His literary style is characterized by a meticulous blending of scholarly research with a passionate commitment to Christian ethics and doctrine. Trumbull's contributions extend beyond his writing, as he held the post of editor for the Sunday School Times, influencing Christian education. His scholarly endeavors offer significant insights into the customs and beliefs that underpin many religious practices, providing a framework for contemporary readers to understand the historical contexts of biblical references. Trumbull remains a respected figure in religious scholarship, with his works continuing to be referenced for their thorough research and insightful theological perspectives.
