In Reformed Covenant Theology: A Systematic Introduction, Harrison Perkins shows how Christ and his work are the heart of that covenant relationship. Since God lives in covenant with his redeemed people, covenant theology provides a framework for Christians to grow in their life with God, to read the Bible, and to love the church.
Perkins is an expert in his field and very much a pastor. … You will not be disappointed.
—From the foreword by Ligon Duncan
We’re witnessing a renaissance of covenant theology, which is to say, classic Reformed theology. Taking into account key debates, Perkins weaves biblical, historical, and systematic theology into a rich tapestry. And, as a pastor, he displays its relevance for our lives. With this book we have the best contemporary account of the Bible’s own unifying structure.

“At last! A systematic entryway into covenant theology. I have been waiting for a book like this one, a book that does not merely regurgitate the storyline of Scripture but summons systematic theology to make covenantal connections across the canon.
—Matthew Barrett, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas City, MO
Readers expecting just another book on covenant theology may be surprised as they read this work, but they will not be disappointed. Harrison Perkins has approached the topic of covenant theology in a unique way here and provided a theological feast in the process. One does not have to agree with all of his conclusions to recognize what a gift this book is to the church.

This book is at once a thorough historical and biblical discussion of covenant theology with all its nooks and crannies, and one that is easy to understand. Perkins writes with a deep familiarity with what he discusses, enabling him both to explain difficult concepts for modern readers and to highlight areas of disagreement even among the Reformed. A model of pastoral scholarship written in service to the church.
