Covenant Theology: Biblical, Theological, and Historical Perspectives

Edited by Guy Prentiss Waters, J. Nicholas Reid, John R. Muether, Foreword by Ligon Duncan

This book forms an overview of the biblical teaching on covenant as well as the practical significance of covenant for the Christian life. A host of 27 scholars shows how covenant is not only clearly taught from Scripture, but also that it lays the foundation for other key doctrines of salvation. Engaging in biblical, systematic, and historical theology, each chapter presents covenant theology not as a theological abstract imposed upon the Bible, but a doctrine that is organically presented throughout the Biblical narrative. As students, pastors, and church leaders come to see the centrality of covenant to the Christian faith, the more the church will be strengthened with faith in the covenant-keeping God and encouraged in their understanding of the joy of covenant life.
