Stephen J. Wellum and Brent E. Parker, eds. Progressive Covenantalism: Charting a Course between Dispensational and Covenant Theologies. Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 2016.
These ten essays exegetically and theologically support the argument that Steve Wellum and Peter Gentry present in Kingdom through Covenant (2012). Unlike covenant theology, progressive covenantalism argues that the genealogical principle (a basis for infant baptism) significantly changes across redemptive history. Unlike dispensationalism, progressive covenantalism understands the land not ultimately as Canaan but as a type of the new creation. This book is now required reading for my biblical theology courses.
The book includes excellent essays by two professors from my school:
- Jason S. DeRouchie, “Father of a Multitude of Nations: New Covenant Ecclesiology in Old Testament Perspective”
- Jason C. Meyer, “The Mosaic Law, Theological Systems, and the Glory of Christ”
