An Introduction to Covenant Theology
Format: Kindle Edition|Change
Price:£0.99

on 24 October 2013
J.I. Packer needs no introduction or further commendation from me; he is a world-renowned Bible scholar, teacher, preacher, theologian, and authority on New Testament Greek. All of this shows in this slim volume about covenantal theology. Packer is never a light read and this book (essay) demands thought and a reasonable knowledge of theological terms. It is not a beginners' book, but it is rewarding. His point is that covenantal theology overarches the whole of Biblical history and teaching. It is fundamental to understanding who God is, what he has done through the ages and what he is still doing. The Christian gospel itself is a part of God's (new) covenant relationship with man. For a reader with background knowledge, who is willing to dig deeper and learn more this is very worthwhile read. For such a cheap kindle price you will never learn more for less.

I often struggle with theology and the the various arguments which instead of enabling prospective bible students ends up confusing the simple mind. The covenant theology (hermeneutics) is simple enough to understand from everyday interactions with the bible as a christian. Understanding the over view of Gods plan and purpose is useful in fulfilment of our role while here on earth. This tiny book simply helps to bring it all together. A great teacher is one who is able to make simple and easy to understand material which otherwise is shrouded in mystery. Well done to J I Packer.

Super article by Packer. Enough to stir the reader to further investigate this key doctrinal framework for grasping the message of salvation.

This very good introduction might be downloaded from the internet (to MS Word)for free, and then sent via email to one's Kindle. Maybe I'm a canny old Scot, but mony a meikle maks a muckle.
