“Covenant Theology: A Reformed Baptist Perspective”

with 3 comments

Are Baptists covenant theologians? Can they be? In his new book, Greg Nichols, gives a clear, coherent, developed and Scriptural answer in the affirmative.

Covenant Theology: A Reformed Baptist Perspective (Solid Ground, 2010, 400 pages, hardback) covers the following topics:

  1. The eternal counsel of redemption
  2. An historical introduction to God’s covenants
  3. A Biblical introduction to God’s covenants
  4. The covenant of grace
  5. The Noahic covenants
  6. The Abrahamic covenant
  7. The Mosaic covenant
  8. The Davidic covenant
  9. The Messianic covenant
  10. The new covenant
  11. Conclusion to God’s covenants

It should be available soon. Hopefully, Evangelical Press will make it available in the UK as SGCB’s distributors here.

UPDATE: SGCB are now suggesting that the book is likely to be printed some time this summer (2011). It’s been a while, but the more pre-orders they receive, the more likely it is to be printed, and the sooner it will happen. So roll in the pre-orders, and badger the publisher!

  1. Hi Jeremy,

    Do you have time to give a brief quote, definition, or explanation of Nichols view of how the ordo salutis is described by the Covenant of Grace? Thanks.

    • Hello, Greg -

      I am waiting on the arrival of my own copy of this, so I cannot give you a definitive answer. However, from my previous exposure to the material, the short answer would be that the covenant of grace is God’s unconditional pledge to accomplish salvation in Christ Jesus (the historia salutis) which is, in time, applied to his elect (the ordo salutis).

      I am not sure if that answers your question, but it is my best short answer from what I have available in my memory and on paper. Hope that helps.
