A guide for us as we seek to apply Covenant theology to the challenges which contemporary Christians have to face in the culture they live and witness.
This robust restatement of covenant theology is not a backwards looking exercise, but drawing on a comprehensive knowledge of the past the author applies the doctrines and insights of covenant theology to the contemporary scene. He does so in a clear and engaging style, not shirking from dealing with difficulties and controversies, but always focusing matters on the life of the individual and the church.
David McKay has accomplished a remarkable goal in this book. He covers the full range of the topics of Christian doctrine from the standpoint of Covenant Theology, showing the relevance of the covenant in all aspects of faith and life. This is, in fact, a covenantal systematic theology. Particularly useful is McKay's treatment of contemporary issues from a covenant perspective: e.g., neo-orthodoxy, the New Age Movement, feminism, evolutionism, the "open view of God," etc. He interacts with an amazing range of Reformed authors, from Calvin to the Puritans to Murray, Van Til, and Reymond. I enthusiastically commend this work, and will use it in my Seminary courses.'
Covenant Theology is a way of understanding the entire biblical message from Genesis to Revelation as essentially one theme. It covers everything, and anyone who writes on it must not only be familiar with biblical themes, but must also be able to integrate historical, systematic and practical theology in such a way that what results is comprehensive and comprehensible. McKay manages to all of this with breathtaking ease. I have been waiting for over twenty years for such a book. This is it.'
Mississippi PastorAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Highly RecommendAugust 20, 2013Mississippi PastorAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This work is very good. While ostensibly a work on covenant theology it really is a "body of divinity" that looks at the way covenant theology informs every aspect of the Christian life from Baptism to Justification to Eldership to National Covenanting.
This book is written by a professor at the Reformed Theological College of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland in Belfast and as such contains some excellent defenses of the mediatorial reign of Christ as well as an entire chapter at the end on covenanting in personal, ecclesiastical, and national relations.
There are a number of notable recommendations on the back including Derek Thomas and Wayne Spear.
A Reader1 Stars Out Of 5January 24, 2002A ReaderThis book is boring and not that scholarly. I was really disappointed by this book because I thought this book was an in-depth treatment of covenant theology. However, what I got was a mini-systematic theology from a Reformed/Covenant perspective. The writing style is dry and the author's insistence that covenant theology is the only "Biblical" way of looking at Scripture was not backed up by detailed exegesis of passages. Also, the book is very shallow and unstimulating. If one is looking for a book on covenant theology look elsewhere.
