The Bible is divided, quite literally, into two covenants. With this understanding we should be intent to understand the idea of covenant and its implications for us as believers. David examines the theology of covenant in a way that confirms the consistency of the Scriptures. With a greater revelation of covenant comes a worldview that empowers and informs our relationship with Jesus Christ.
David McKay has accomplished a remarkable goal in this book. He covers the full range of the topics of Christian doctrine from the standpoint of Covenant Theology, showing the relevance of the covenant in all aspects of faith and life. This is, in fact, a covenantal systematic theology. Particularly useful is McKay's treatment of contemporary issues from a covenant perspective: e.g., neo-orthodoxy, the New Age Movement, feminism, evolutionism, the "open view of God," etc. He interacts with an amazing range of Reformed authors, from Calvin to the Puritans to Murray, Van Til, and Reymond. I enthusiastically commend this work, and will use it in my seminary courses.
