“Covenant Theology: A Reformed Baptist Perspective”

with one comment

OK, I know that we have been here before, but it seems that things are moving forward at last. I am assured that Greg Nichols’ book Covenant Theology: A Reformed Baptist Perspective (Solid Ground, 2010, 400 pages, hardback) will be published in October of this year, God willing. Ordering now direct from the publisher will get you a significant discount, especially if you order in bulk.

Derek Thomas had this to say in commendation:

Baptists who embrace their historic Calvinistic and Covenantal roots have long since needed a robust and comprehensive treatment of Covenant Theology that includes the nuanced interpretations of the biblical covenants that a baptistic hermeneutic requires. This treatment by Greg Nichols does just that and more. As a devotee of the Westminster tradition (including its chapter, ‘On God’s Covenant with Man’), I differ here and there; sometimes significantly so. But there is so much to applaud in this volume and Baptists will do well to read this volume carefully and with much gratitude. A splendid achievement. I, for one, will insist that my Presbyterian students read it.

Robert P. Martin endorsed it thusly:

Greg Nichols has done a wonderful job of articulating a genuinely reformed and baptistic model of covenant theology. The fruit of decades of study and teaching on his subject, this volume should be read by all who want to understand the proper framework of divine revelation. My counsel to all ministerial students is Tolle lege (take up and read).
