There's a few reasons why I rate it one star (not exhaustive, I'd have to write a book in response to it). Mind you, this is coming from someone who once ascribed to New Covenant Theology (NCT):

1) Paints Covenant Theology with a very broad brush, leaving Reformed Baptists out in the cold, and only considering Presbyterian Covenant Theology when dealing with Covenant Theology (CT).

2) Claims that NCT "does not have any outside document that must be imposed on the text of Scripture. It strives to

A basic introduction

This book is good for those just diving into NCT. it provides basic tenants of NCT and some of the logic behind them. This is a good primer for those exploring, but I would encourage people to also explore scholarly works. As far as the mentions of the other two interpretive systems are concerned, there are not too many mentions of either. It seems as if the author has only interacted with Presbyterian CT, and not with 1689 Federalism( a Reformed Baptist perspective on

In terms of covering new covenant theology, it did its job very well. However, I do wish that the author didn't, for lack of a better word, throw verses in. I can appreciate how brief this book is, but he should have taken a little more time to provide more context for the verses he was using. At times, more so near the end of the book than the begining, it came off as though he was looking for verses to support his point, rather than making his points based off the Bible.

Great primer!

I would recomend this read to anyone who grasps CT and DT. The book is written in a very understandable fashion. I would certainly recommend this book to any of my brothers as a NCT intro.

A good, basic introduction to New Covenant Theology. Gave me the desire study further of the topics addressed in more detail.

Interesting, clear & succint, it puts forth well its point of view. But I still need to find a clear comparison to both Baptist covenantalism on one hand, and progressive covenantalism on the other.

Great short introduction.

Lots of theology packed in a small book. Written on a level that is easy to grasp with plenty of information for deeper study.
James Harmeling
This is a brief primer on the attempts to forge a middle ground between covenant theology and dispensationalism. White does not attempt to delve too deeply into his defense of his positions. He simply wants to introduce New Covenant Theology and highlight some of the reasons it is preferable to the other systems. In doing this, he quickly drew my praise and my ire. I was glad he stated that Covenant Theology does not have biblical basis for its foundational premises of covenants and that since ...more

This is a very concise introduction to New Covenant theology just as the title promises. The author explains the purpose of this theology is to be informed by scripture and not to impose a system upon scripture as he asserts Dispensationalists and Covenant theologians do. He does not spend time refuting other theologies as he is merely introducing New Covenant teachings.

Fundamentally, scripture is to be read with Christ as the center of scripture and redemptive history, indeed of all things.

It presents the basic 7 Christ-centered doctrines in a clear way and encourages the reader to look in Scripture for the proofs.

Highly recommended!

A short but helpful book on New Covenant Theology that serves as a great intro. Can also be used for material for teaching or leading a church to understand NCT better.

“The story of the Bible is not the story of the covenant of grace; nor is it the story of Israel. The Bible is the story of God’s work in history to sum up all things in Christ. New Covenant Theology strives to keep this one plan of God—centered in Jesus Christ—primary.” 0 likes
“Eschatology is generally understood as the study of the end times (or last things), so when New Covenant Theology says that the church is the eschatological Israel, we are saying that the church is the end-time Israel.” 0 likes
