about

God has always dealt with his people through the covenant. Yet, in spite of this, it is a teaching that is all too often neglected. Many Baptists don't know why they are Baptist. If questioned they are most likely to respond by alluding to the mode of baptism rather than its underlying theology. This book seeks to remedy this. It is accessible to the average Christian in the pew, providing the reader with a clear understanding of the historical Baptist position. In doing so it will enable the Christian to appreciate more fully his position in Christ. The work clearly shows that there is only one covenant of grace, namely the new covenant in Christ. In doing this the work points out the errors inherent in the Reformed paedobaptist paradigm.""This book is a welcomed addition to the increase of literature on covenant theology from a Baptist perspective. Griffiths argues that one is either in Adam or in Christ, there being no middle ground, and to be in Christ (prior to or after the fact of the cross) is to be a recipient of what our Lord both secured and delivers by virtue of the new covenant. The discussion is informed and worth the time to read and ponder.""--Richard C. Barcellos, Pastor, Grace Reformed Baptist Church, Palmdale, CA; Author, The Lord's Supper as a Means of Grace: More than a Memory""In this book, Griffiths presents a persuasive argument for a Reformed Baptist understanding of covenant theology. Anyone recognizing the fundamental value of covenant theology will benefit from this edifying work. I warmly recommend it as a very important resource, especially to Reformed Baptist believers. Readers of other persuasions will find much to think through and hopefully will be convinced by the accuracy of the view put forth in these pages."" --Pascal Denault, Author, The Distinctiveness of Baptist Covenant TheologyPhillip D. R. Griffiths lives in Bethlehem in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. He has been happily married for thirty years to Melody, and they have two children, Benjamin and Joseph. Phillip is the author of From Calvin to Barth: A Return to Protestant Orthodoxy?
