Product Description

In the debate over Calvin's relationship to covenant theology, Peter Lillback offers fresh in-depth scholarship and answers many of the tensions between Calvin's system of theology and traditional covenant theology. Through careful examination of primary sources, Lillback builds a large store of evidence for Calvin's covenant thought. He completely refutes popular claims that predestination and covenant theology were considered incompatible in the early Reformed tradition, that the theologies of Zurich and Geneva were fundamentally different, and that Calvin's system left no room for a covenant understanding of theology. The Binding of God is set in the larger context of Calvin's sociopolitical and theological worlds. It provides important background to current theological topics, such as modes of baptism and Paul and the law, and is valuable for students of Reformation and sixteenth-century history.

Publisher's Description

After tracing the historical development of the covenant idea, Lillback carefully examines the writings of Calvin for evidence and description of Calvin's covenant thought. He ultimately argues that Calvin developed an extensive covenant theology.
The Binding of God provides important background to current theological discussions, such as modes of baptism and Paul and the law. It will be of significance to scholars of the Reformation and the sixteenth century.
