    Jay, I really believe these are some of the greatest theological works produced by post-reformation theologians. I did realize that Edwards’ History of the Work of Redemption was quite a bit more well known than the others. But they are all very similar in some respects. Some might wonder why I put Peck’s notes on ecclesiology in this list. I included it because I have come to believe that biblical theology is covenant theology and ecclesiology is simply a branch of covenant theology. I have been working on how to formulate this most carefully for the past four years and hope to write something on it in the near future. I would recommend C. N. Willborn’s article on Southern Presbyterian Biblical Theology in the volume of Essays in honor of O. Palmer Robertson.

    Yes, that’s why I said I need to get one! The Amazon Kindle is the device to have, however Sony makes one as well. There are two issues: the readers use proprietary formats for books you purchase and I don’t believe theological publishers are releasing books for the Kindle yet.

  3. Thanks Nick for all your posts, especially the ones that uncover some of the Presbyterian riches from the past. These are largely new to me and my interest in Old School Presbyterianism is increasing.
