In case our blog’s readers haven’t noticed yet, over at the 1689 Federalism website, on their books page, is a sign up form to be notified when the forthcoming book, Recovering a Covenantal Heritage: Essays in Baptist Covenant Theology, is published.
It promises to be an important work from a collection of excellent Reformed Baptist scholars, including our own Jeff Johnson. Richard Barcellos posted here back in February that he is editing the book.

One thought on “Recovering a Covenantal Heritage: Essays in Baptist Covenant Theology”
I recently read Baptist Pastor Hal Brunson's book, The Rickety Bridge and the Broken Mirror. In that work he points out that the promise spoken of in Acts 2 is the one made to David about the Son he would have Who would be a forever King with out end. The paedobaptists not only get the verse wrong, they get the promise it refers to wrong as well!
