One feels foolish to attempt to review or comment on a book that they themselves have yet to fully grasp, and this monumental work by John G. Reisinger certainly places me in that uncomfortable predicament.

Being a younger Christian with no formal theological education, I do not shy away from the fact that I do not know everything.

At times I find myself grasping at every book I see, hoping to learn and understand what I can of some of these deeper concepts.

I was not heavily familiar with the fin

I really agree with the fundamental point that both dispensational theology and covenant theology are systems imposed on Scriptural texts rather than being exegetically drawn out of the biblical texts.

But this book was quite jumbled, overstated, and often cliched. I doubt that many covenant theologians for instance would feel accurately represented here - Resinger does not seem to understand the typology that someone like Calvin for instance articulated in the Institutes.

Very good. Challenges the doctrines of dispensationalism and (more pertinent to my Presbyterian-recovering-self) Covenant Theology.

I’m loath to accept doctrine without much historical precedent...but this book is pretty solid.

One the best books in helping develop a biblical theology and seeing the grand scheme of Scripture.

This book explains clearly and profoundly the basic presuppositions of both Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology. It is a great tool for the one who wants to understand in which theological foundations these two system are based and what are the most constant errors.

For the one who wants to go depth in New Covenant Theology studies compared with the other two systems of Biblical Theology.
William Dicks
This is an excellent book on New Covenant Theology. It breaks down the wrong ideas held by Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology and provides a simple yet profound, direct interpretation of the Scriptures. It does become a little repetitive at times, but is well worth the effort to read it.

A helpful look at how scripture uses the term "Abraham's seed". Brings a lot of clarity to an oft debated topic.
