  1. This is good stuff! I have bookmarked the site so I can look at it more when time permits. Thanks

  2. Some of asked about what to read. Here are some suggestions. The Coxe/Owen book is a must read. IMO, in order to understand ch. 7 of the Confession, we must start with Coxe, probably the co-editor of the Confession. Pascal Denault is next, a really fine piece because he takes us back to the primary sources. There may be a few times where he over-states his case, but there are others (well, at least once, I think) where he acknowledges diversity. You can listen to a podcast with Denault at the confessing baptist site. Jeffrey D. Johnson’s The Fatal Flaw is really good and Denault said it is the closest thing written recently to the 17th-century PB majority view. The last half of the book is where the pay-off is. I also recommend Samuel Petto’s The Covenant of Grace and Mike Brown’s book on Petto, Christ and the Condition. I am editing a book called Recovering a Covenantal Heritage: Essays in Baptist Covenant Theology, but it’s not out yet. Finally you can read some very helpful primary source stuff at Sam Renihan’s site.

  3. should have read “Some *have* asked…”

  4. Thanks for that video. I have found that many reformed baptists today will insist that the Abrahamic, Mosaic and/or Davidic covenants were part of the Covenant of Grace but I’ve never found that statement to be consistent to Scripture (otherwise, why would the Lord point out the distinction of the Old and New Covenant in Hebrews 8, where clearly the new covenant is the Covenant of Grace?). I think some try too hard to adapt to what they think is “reformed”, but they fall into the trap of the paedo-baptist CT mind-set, which would inevitably lead you to baptizing infants (which we know is inconsistent with Scriptures).

    Thanks for pointing out the distinctions ….
