A must read for all reformed baptist. Owen and Coxe are my two favorite English theologians. Thanks to the editors for making their work available.

Before reading this volume, I read Pascal's work which brought me to Reformed Baptist 1689 Federalism and then I read Recovering A Covenantal Heritage. These works were great, but I missed something. That something was John Owen's mind-blowing exegesis. I was amazed and mind-blown but the grace that was extended to this man in the understanding and explaining of the Scripture. It was biblical and compelling.

It was also nice to read Nehemiah Coxe on the Adamic, Noahic and Abrahamic Covenant.

While my view of the Covenant of Redemption & Covenant of Grace is closer to that of John Gill, Coxe's treatment of the Adamic, Noahic, and Abrahamic covenants, paired with Owen's discourse on the Sinaitic and New Covenants, makes this book indispensable reading, particularly for Reformed Baptists. My only wish was that a discussion of the Davidic covenant was included by one of these great theologians, but that's not enough to drop a star from my rating!

I first read this volume almost two years ago, and have since recommended it to as many people as I could. At the time, I was preparing to teach a bible study through the book of Genesis. As a Reformed Baptist, I knew I would have to address God's covenant with Abraham, so I began diving into covenant theology. I was a little surprised and somewhat bewildered by what I read - as it didn't match my own thoughts on the subject. I knew I wasn't a dispensationalist, but I didn't seem to be lining up ...more

Excellent book! I would say the greatest benefit of this book is the light it has shed on many Scripture passages. Knowing that our triune God always deals with us by way of covenant, to begin to read the Bible through a covenantal lens has been a great blessing.

Also, it has given me a better understanding of the covenant theologians( along with their confessions) of the 17th century. Being that I am a 2LBC RB, and worshipping in an OPC, this book has hopefully further equipped me for more frui

This book was recommended to me by one of my best friends as the standard text for covenant theology. And for that, I rate it two stars.

On its own merits, however, I found it severely lacking in a sound Scriptural basis; I came away a stauncher dispensationalist than when I began it. Just because someone [rightly] places emphasis upon the sovereignty and grace of God clearly does not mean that their hermeneutical system is proper and well-supported. To support an entire system on the basis of im

Coming to Reformed Theology, I first came to an understanding of a Presbyterian formulation of Covenant Theology; but then a buddy of mine referred me to some works on Baptist Covenant Theology. This book, as well as Denault's "The Distinctiveness of Baptist Covenant Theology", has given me some things to consider. The next book on my reading list is "Recovering a Covenantal Heritage: Essays In Baptist Covenant Theology".
