What was John Calvin's relationship to covenant theology? After tracing the historical development of the covenant idea, Lillback carefully examines the writings of Calvin for evidence and description of Calvin's covenant thought. He ultimately argues that Calvin developed an extensive covenant theology. "The Binding of God" provides important background to current theological discussions, such as modes of baptism and Paul and the law. It will be of significance to scholars of the Reformation and the sixteenth century.
Peter A. Lillback (Ph.D., Westminster Theological Seminary) is president and adjunct professor of historical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary and professor of church history at Reformed Episcopal Seminary, both located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
