Crossway, Guy Prentiss Waters (Ed.), 2020
They have done it again! The Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) faculty and Crossway have collaborated to publish this volume, being the third after the Biblical-Theological Introductions of the Old and New Testaments. And like its predecessors, this volume will not disappoint the reader.
From topics so basic to understanding Covenant Theology such as covenants of redemption, works, and grace to relevant details about the historical development and new aspects of these doctrines, and even a complete section of collateral studies surrounding Covenant Theology as its relation to the Ancient Near East, and Dispensationalism, it is difficult to find today a more complete work on this subject.
Granted, it’s not a volume easy to read. Both the book’s length and the depth with which it treats each topic presuppose that the audience has a general knowledge of Biblical and Systematic Theology. For this reason, the volume is ideal for bible college students, seminarians, and master’s level academics. As with most of these volumes, the Spanish-speaking world will have to wait a while to see this work translated into Spanish. However, when it happens, it will be worth the wait.
I am grateful to Crossway for providing me with a review copy of this book.
