My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Covenant theology is making a come-back! After a century of being eclipsed by Dispensationalism, theologians are re-discovering the covenantal unity of the Bible. Jonathan Lunde’s new book is a welcome contribution to this effort. Lunde shows how Jesus fulfills the deepest meanings of the Old Covenant Laws, and shows us how the principles of the Old Testament apply to us in the New Covenant. Lunde is well-read in the contemporary scholar literature. But this is not just a book about biblical theology. Lunde’s sub-title is: “A Biblical Theology of Covenantal Discipleship.” Accordingly, Lunde does a good job of connecting sometimes complicated theological arguments to real-life situations. Well worth a read!
