really liked it

The book is actually three works in one. The first is a very good exposition of Baptist fœderalism, focusing on the dichotomous nature of the Abrahamic covenant, a feature missed by Presbyterian & Congregationalists that is the Achiles’ heel of their systems, with the application of it to issues of law & grace.

The second is a retelling of the Biblical storyline. I guess it might be deemed quite good, but I guess I am not wired to its format & style. It was a chore, to be blunt.

The third is a few pages of application of Baptist fœderalism to the New perspective on Paul. It was quite refreshing how it solves not only the perplexities of baby sprinkling, but also of new approaches to Paul.
