Product Description

Review

With all sorts of proposals about the 'big idea' of Scripture floating about, Jonty Rhodes does us the favour of pointing to the Bible's own answer to that question. He carefully demonstrates that at the heart of God's revelation of himself to humanity is a well-defined relationship which is given a name in Scripture: covenant relationship. The idea of the covenant shapes the whole of Scripture from the garden to the upper room, and it points us to the significance of the two main characters in the human story - Adam, the first, who was a covenant breaker and Adam, the last (Christ), who was the covenant keeper. Born under the curse brought on us by the disobedience of the former, we are freed from the curse by the obedience of the latter. Jonty's work is clear-headed and heart-warming, satisfyingly biblical and Christ-exalting. I warmly commend it. --Liam Goligher, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia

Format: Paperback
I've been waiting for a book like this to be written for years - now it has arrived. For me it is now the go-to book for anyone wanting an introduction to Covenant theology - clear, straight-forward, readable and most of all biblical. In it Jonty Rhodes tells the big story that runs through the Bible.

He explains, illustrates and anticipates questions well.

He shows the interconnectedness of the covenants with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David--how they are all part of the one rich means of God interacting and relating to mankind. He unpacks the Covenant of Redemption--that glorious agreement between Father and Son, out of which all the other covenants flow. With clarity he sets out the differing viewpoints on the Mosaic Covenant and then opts not to go with the view of Kline and Horton, an outcome I was happy with.

As a Sabbath keeping, paedobaptist, Presbyterian I was pleased to see him connecting the dots between covenant theology and these spheres as well.

An excellent book, and a joy to read. My copy is well highlighted.

What could be more exciting and mysterious than the subject of how God does business with his people?

A clear introduction to Covenant Theology, 'Raiding of the Lost Ark' breaks down an age old and yet incredibly relevant debate, bringing a discussion which has confused Christians for centuries and has offered ammunition to non-Christians looking for opportunity to slam the apparent inconsistencies of the Bible.

Jonty lays out a beautifully accessible chronological Bible plot line describing a helpful framework for understanding biblical covenants: people, place, presence (and king) from Adam to the renewed creation via Noah, Abraham, Moses, the kings and of course Christ himself; focussing on the application to us, today, giving us a longing for what is to come.

Three strengths:

1. Format, style and pitch

It reads as a very personal tone; conviction and personality ripple through making this book come across as a labour of love and desire to see others grow in godliness rather than some kind of irritated doctrinal rant or ride on a theological hobbyhorse.

Incredibly easy to read, I would recommend to new Christians learning of their fledgling faith and craving an understanding of how the Bible fits together (personally I'd probably give this away paired with a copy of Roberts' 'God's Big Picture'). A super-clear one page definition of passive and active grace in chapter 8 epitomises the way he unashamedly meets complex doctrine with clear explanation, not just for the sake of it, rather because it is vital for the reader to grasp. At the same time, in no way would this be a patronising read to a studied veteran of the faith, reminding them of the core truth of God's dealings with his people.

Useful if read this sort of thing before, or if never heard of God's covenant.
