Reformed thinker Horton sees God's covenant and promise as the key to understanding all of Scripture. Masterfully summarizes the way in which covenant theology holds vital Christian principles in tension---faith and works, justification and sanctification, law and gospel, human responsibility and divine sovereignty, etc. 208 pages, softcover. Baker.
Since biblical times, history is replete with promises made and promises broken. Pastors and teachers know the power of the covenant, and they know that understanding the concept of covenant is crucial to understanding Scripture. They also know that covenant theology provides the foundation for core Christian beliefs and that covenants in their historical context hold significance even today. But to laypeople and new Christians, the eternal implications of "cutting" a covenant with God can be complicated.
Now available in trade paper, Introducing Covenant Theology unwinds the intricacies of covenant theology, making the complex surprisingly simple and accessible to every reader. With keen understanding, careful scholarship, and insight, Michael Horton leads all believers toward a deeper understanding of crucial covenant concepts.
