    Overall, a really helpful contribution to the discussion on how to put together the storyline of the bible It s an edited volume, so there are stronger and weaker chapters Here is a one sentence review of each 1 Father of a Multitude of Nations discussion of relationship of Abrahamic promise to New Cov community DeRouchie helpfully develops Paul s statement in Galatians that Jesus is the seed, however the chapter suffers from trying to cover too much ground in a little space.2 The Israel Christ Church Relationship covers similar ground to above chapter Excellent explanation of the relationship between OT Israel and NT church as focused through church s union with Christ.3 Mosaic Law, Theological Systems, and the Glory of Christ Excellent work by Jason Meyer on explaining the way the church should relate to the Mosaic Law as scripture, even as we aren t bound to it as law 4 Covenantal Life with God from Eden to Holy City This chapter suffers from trying to do too much in 30 ish pages Because it is of an exploration, the conclusions feel scattershot.5 Circumcision of Fl...

    Not for the faint of heart, but good, hard, work I would recommend reading God s Kingdom Through God s Covenants the abridged version of Kingdom Through Covenant , before diving into this Progressive Covenantalism is a collection of articles, by various authors, applying the framework of Wellum and Gentry s work KTC to various topics as they develop through the Bible s storyline Some of these articles felt like they were written for this volume, others felt like academic articles which had been cut down to 20 or so pages which is why I gave it a 4 star rating Given the academic bent of the book i...

    Last year, I slowly worked my way through Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum s massive book, Kingdom Through Covenant While it definitely impacted my thinking in a number of ways, it also left me with several unanswered questions concerning the relationship between Israel and the Church, the typology of the land promises, the role of the Mosaic law in the lives of New Covenant believers, and the New Testament s development fulfillment of Old Testament promises While I still have a good number of lingering questions, this book went a long way towards filling in some of those theological gaps This collection of essays is clear, well argued, and exegetically rigorous without being overly academic though I would recommend it primarily to those who already enjoy reading theological works In particular, the chapters by Parker on the Israel Christ Church relationship , Meyer on the Mosaic Law , Schreiner on the Sabbath command and Wellum on doing whole Bible ethics have helped to shaped my own views on those subjects The final chapter by Martin on the typology of the land promise was good but felt a little rushed I would be interested in reading his Bound for the Promised Land to see him develop his argument fully than he c...

    The battle between Covenant Theology CT and Dispensational Theology DT is notoriously intense and shows no signs of calming down Over time, however, the emergence of mediating positions has blurred the sharp distinction On such via media is dubbed Progressive Covenantalism, first articulated in Kingdom Through Covenant KTC This new book, Progressive Covenantalism, is considered a continuation of KTC p4 by consisting of essays collected from like minded scholars that address issues underdeveloped and not discussed p4 in KTC.What is Progressive Covenantalism PC It is progressive in seeking to underscore the unfolding nature of God s revelation over time , and is covenantal by emphasizing that God s plan unfolds through the covenants and that all of the covenants find their fulfillment, telos, and terminus in Christ p2 Progressive Covenantalism unfolds logically over ten chapters, arranged in relationship to the CT DT binary.In chapter 1, Jason DeRouchie holds that by tracing the development of Abraham s seed across the two testaments, particularly in Isaianic passages, one must reject both CT s and DT s views of new covenant ecclesiology and hold a nuanced and biblical ecclesiology.A key question in the debate is the relationship between Israel and the church, and in chapter 2 Brent Parker enters the ring by arguing that both positions are incorrect For Parker, CT incorrectly blurs ...

    This is one of the best theology books I have read in several years For the last couple of decades various proposals have been made to improve on classical dispensational and classical covenantal theology This is one of the best attempts In some ways this is a sequel to Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum s Kingdom Through Covenant.Their approach is of an exhaustive biblical theology whereas this is of a topical summary of the main issues that have separated dispensational and covenantal theology They deal with 10 such issues and here are some of their conclusions Regarding Abraham s seed Jason DeRouchie concludes Christ is the seed of Abraham and David and the one through whom both Abraham s fatherly headship over a multitude and David s eternal throne find fulfillment Today whether Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free, males or females all become offspring of Christ and then of Abraham only through union with Jesus by faith 38 Regarding the relationship between Israel and the church Brent Parker concludes Progressive covenantalism understands national Israel as a typological pattern not unlike other OT persons, institutions, and events Individual persons in the OT typologically foreshadowed Jesus, the chief antitype, and like God used a corporate Adam, the Israelite nation, to point to a greater Son, Jesus and to a faithful community, the church Israel is related to the ...

    This book is a collection of 10 essays that unpack some of the practical and theological implications of the argument put forth in Kingdom through Covenant It presents progressive covenantalism as a middle way between covenant theology and dispensationalism Wellum explains the name in this way Progressive seeks to underscore the unfolding nature of God s revelation over time, while covenantalism emphasizes that God s plan unfolds through the covenants and that all of the covenants find their fulfillment, telos, and terminus in Christ We strongly argue for the unity of God s plan promise culminating in the new covenant There are some books that I am excited to read simply because of the index of names This was one of those books Over the past few years, I have been greatly helped by authors like Stephen Wellum, Jason Meyer, Douglas Moo, Tom Schreiner, G....

    Wellum has compiled a number of essays that helpfully demonstrate how the covenantal framework gives shape to the Biblical storyline and to theological themes The many author s critique of covenant and dispensational theology were insightful, though I m sure progressive covenantalism has its own critics I m increasingly convinced of its general hermeneutical principles, but probably need time to re...

    Progressive Covenantalism is the name of a type of understanding the role of God s covenants in the Bible, without subscribing to Covenant theology or dispensationalism It is a helpful critique of both that is born out of an emphasis on the newness and betterness of the new covenant than in Covenant theology, without falling into the wooden literalism of dispensationalism.This collection of essays advances the ideas of theologians working within this understanding The essays are cover a wide range of topics As with any book like this, some essays are better, or at least of interest than others This is primarily a book for academics, though lay theologians like myself will be able to understand most everything I recommend this for those int...

    The nuanced differences between Dispensational and Covenantal theologies have stirred conversation for over a century There have been numerous attempts to find common ground that encompasses the far reaching nature of these differences, but unfortunately, most of the attempts have failed to be than subtle modifications of an already deficient system Progressive Covenantalism Charting a Course between Dispensational and Covenantal Theologies edited by Stephen J Wellum and Brent E Parker has in many ways changed that trajectory for the better Progressive Covenantalism is a curated collection of essays that seek to underscore the unfolding nature of God s revelation over time, while emphasiz ing that God s plan unfolds through the covenant and all of the covenants find their fulfillment and terminus in Christ p 2 Further, the essays included here exegetically and theologically underscore the substantial work of Stephen J Wellum and Peter Gentry presented in Kingdom through Covenant Crossway, 2012 Chapters 1 4 are targeted at various topics considered crucial to putting together the biblical covenants, including the relationship between Israel and the Church and the function of the Mosaic Law Chapters 5 8 are specifically concerned with issues related to covenant theology, including a fascinating e...
