History of the Covenant Concept From the Bible to Johannes Cloppenburg `de Foedere Dei'
|Author: ||Poole, David|
The aim of this dissertation is to fill in the gaps and survey the main strands of the theology of covenant from biblical times up to the period before Cocceius, and in particular his immediate forerunner, Johannes Cloppenburg. The work of German scholars, including Kutsch, is reviewed (often for the first time in English) along with many American scholars in the vanguard of research on the theology of covenant. The literary and socio-political dimensions of covenant thought are considered in the appendices.
