Kingdom through Covenant: A Biblical-Theological Understanding of the Covenants
1 in stock
Kingdom through Covenant is a careful exposition of how the biblical covenants unfold and relate to one another—a widely debated topic, critical for understanding the narrative plot structure of the whole Bible.
By incorporating the latest available research from the ancient Near East and examining implications of their work for Christology, ecclesiology, eschatology, and hermeneutics, scholars Peter J. Gentry and Stephen J. Wellum present a thoughtful and viable alternative to both covenant theology and dispensationalism.
This second edition features updated and revised content, clarifying key material and integrating the latest findings into the discussion.
“What do you get when you cross a world-class Bible scholar and a first-rate systematic theologian? You get nine hundred-plus pages of power-packed biblical goodness. You get the forest and quite a few of the trees. This is not the first volume that has attempted to mediate the dispensational–covenant theology divide, but it may be the culminating presentation of that discussion—just as Bach was not the first baroque composer but its highest moment. Gentry and Wellum’s proposal of Kingdom through Covenant should be read by all parties, but I won’t be surprised to learn in twenty years that this volume provided the foundation for how a generation of anyone who advocates regenerate church membership puts its Bible together.”
