    Michael Horton in this book gives the church and updated primer on covenant theology, drawing upon and routinely surpassing the works of Meredith Kline and O Palmer Robertson It is superior to these two works both in style and choice of content Few can match Horton s clear, lucid writing With regard to choice of content, Horton covers the same ground that most systematics cover, but he does so without being repetitious As a whole, the book is outstanding, but I can only recommend it with a Michael Horton in this book gives the church and updated primer on covenant theology, drawing upon and routinely surpassing the works of Meredith Kline and O Palmer Robertson It is superior to these two works both in style and choice of content Few can match Horton s clear, lucid writing With regard to choice of content, Horton covers the same ground that most systematics cover, but he does so without being repetitious As a whole, the book is outstanding, but I can only recommend it with a few qualificationsbelow Given the controversial nature of some things in this book, the reviewer must remind the reader that the fi...

    This was BRUTALLY unreadable It s packaged as a layperson s introduction, but written like a stiff, dry, overly formal and complex academic textbook I mean, I m not a stupid girl, but I found it difficult to press through and comprehend Still, it had good in...

    There is a lot of good material on this book, particularly on the covenant of redemption, the covenant of works, natural law, the law gospel distinction, and the sacraments The major downside is the underlying Klinean assumptions about the supposed similarities biblical covenants and ancient near eastern suzerain treaties While I hold that there was a republication of the covenant of works under Moses, I am not sure that Michael Horton does justice to the Mosaic economy as the legal administra There is a lot of good material on this book, particularly on the covenant of redemption, the covenant of works, natural law, the law gospel distinction, and the sacraments The major downside is the underlying Klinean assumptions about the supposed similarities biblical covenants and ancient near eastern suzerain treaties While I hold that there was a republication of the covenant of works under Moses, I am not sure that Michael Horton does justice to the Mosaic...

    This book calls itself an introduction to Covenant Theology but without a foundation in theological concepts and terms which Horton does not usually provide , this book will be difficult for the layperson Even with a basic foundation, I was boxing above my weight with this book The book readslike a defense of covenant theology than an introduction after reading, I feel I have at least been exposed to the major points of covenant theology and arguments for and counter arguments against This book calls itself an introduction to Covenant Theology but without a foundation in theological concepts and terms which Horton does not usually provide , this book will be difficult for the layperson Even with a basic foundation, I was boxing above my weight with this book The book readslike a defense of covenant theology than an introduction after reading, I feel I have at least ...

    This review is somewhat difficult for me to write As someone with a passing familiarity with covenant theology a system of biblical interpretation which sees the various covenants between God and Man as an organizational structure for all of Scripture who hoped for a good primer in order to better understand the system on its own terms, I was glad to find a book by Michael Horton that appeared to be what I was seeking I have enjoyed other books by Horton, as well as his blog and radio show, This review is somewhat difficult for me to write As someone with a passing familiarity with covenant theology a system of biblical interpretation which sees the various covenants between God and Man as an organizational structure for all of Scripture who hoped for a good primer in order to better understand the system on its own terms, I was glad to find a book by Michael Horton that appeared to be what I was seeking I have enjoyed other books by Horton, as well as his blog and radio show, and know that he is a very well respected theologian within Reformed circles and in Horton s words, Covenant theology IS Reformed theology.Unfortunately, this book is not as introductory as I had hoped Horton draws extensively from the writings of several other authors, and his writing seems to assume that readers will have a littleprior knowledge of covenant theology than I possess I suppose I may have been looking forof an overview for the uninitiated, and this is not that book Also...

    I actually thought this was a pretty good introduction to covenant theology Horton makes use of much of Meredith Kline s work in covenant theology But, as Horton argues, much of his and Kline s views have a solid reformed heritage behind it At this point I m not sure where I stand on this issue modern debates between Klineans and Murrayites, for example , but Horton s little book did much to dissuade my Klinean prejudices which, I m sorry to admit, were mainly do to personal loyalties and I actually thought this was a pretty good introduction to covenant theology Horton makes use of much of Meredith Kline s work in covenant theology But, as Horton argues, much of his and Kline s views have a solid reformed heritage behind it At this point I m not sure where I stand on this issue modern debates between Klineans and Murrayites, for example , but Horton s little book did much to dissuade my Klinean prejudic...

    Good overall Really just a rehashing of Vos and Kline I see what Horton was trying to do take the writings of these scholars and filter them to the layman Unfortunely, Horton can t get away from his covenental language enough to truly help beginners understand Great content, but I wouldn t recomend it to someone just investigating covenant theology.The chapter on Covenant People and Covenant Obedience were excellent, and Horton still had alot of great points The last three paragraphs of th Good overall Really just a rehashing of Vos and Kline I see what Horton was trying to do take the writings of these scholars and filter them to the layman Unfortunely, Horton can t get away from his covenental language enough to truly help beginners understand Great content, but I wouldn t recomend it to someone just investigating covenant theology.The chapter on Covenant People and Covenant Obedience were excellent, and Horton still had alot of great points Th...
