A covenantal heritage

I am looking forward to reading a new publication from Reformed Baptist Academic Press called Recovering a Covenantal Heritage: Essays in Baptist Covenant Theology, edited by Rich Barcellos. It is a delight to see reformed Baptists wrestling through the rich heritage we have of a robust covenantal theology that respects the continuities between the old and the new covenants while at the same time properly recognising the newness of the new covenant. I have thoroughly appreciated the work that these brothers have done, while still seeking to explore the nuances and emphases and consequences of what is being eagerly propounded, and I am looking forward to seeing what these gentlemen have produced. The contents of the volume are as follows, and it is available through Amazon in the US and the UK, as well as directly from RBAP. Confessional Baptists would do well to obtain and carefully ponder this material.
