Many theological discussions come to an impasse when parties align behind either covenant theology or dispensationalism. But Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum propose a significant biblical theology of the covenants that avoids the extremes of both classical systems--and holds the potential to resolve the differences. Kingdom through Covenant is a careful exposition of how the biblical covenants unfold and relate to one another, key to understanding the narrative plot structure of the whole Bible. By incorporating the latest available research from the ancient Near East and examining implications of their work for Christology, ecclesiology, eschatology, and hermeneutics, Gentry and Wellum present a thoughtful and viable alternative to both covenant theology and dispensationalism. This second edition features updated and revised content, clarifying key material and staying up to date in the discussion.
