Christian Focus The Bond of Love: God's Convenantal Relationship with His Church

Covenant Theology is a way of understanding the entire biblical message from Genesis to Revelation as essentially one theme. It covers everything, and anyone who writes on it must not only be familiar with biblical themes, but must also be able to integrate historical, systematic and practical theology in such a way that what results is comprehensive and comprehensible.

This work is very good. While ostensibly a work on covenant theology it really is a "body of divinity" that looks at the way covenant theology informs every aspect of the Christian life from Baptism to Justification to Eldership to National Covenanting.
This book is written by a professor at the Reformed Theological College of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland in Belfast and as such contains some excellent defenses of the mediatorial reign of Christ as well as an entire chapter at the end on covenanting in personal, ecclesiastical, and national relations.
There are a number of notable recommendations on the back including Derek Thomas and Wayne Spear.

This book is boring and not that scholarly. I was really disappointed by this book because I thought this book was an in-depth treatment of covenant theology. However, what I got was a mini-systematic theology from a Reformed/Covenant perspective. The writing style is dry and the author's insistence that covenant theology is the only "Biblical" way of looking at Scripture was not backed up by detailed exegesis of passages. Also, the book is very shallow and unstimulating. If one is looking for a book on covenant theology look elsewhere.
