This volume argues for the validity of covenant theology as a organizing principle in theology, and furthermore for the classic reformation understanding of forensic justification. From this stance, Horton interacts with various modern theologies, such as the New Perspective on Paul, Radical Orthodoxy, and Catholic and Orthodox theologies. While many won't agree with all of his conclusions, Horton argues his position clearly and comprehensively, and this should be the go-to book for anyone who is arguing either for or against the forensic position.
