What was John Calvin's relationship to covenant theology? After tracing the historical development of the covenant idea, Lillback carefully examines the writings of Calvin for evidence and description of Calvin's covenant thought. He ultimately argues that Calvin developed an extensive covenant theology.The Binding of God provides important background to current theological discussions, such as modes of baptism and Paul and the law. It will be of significance to scholars of the Reformation and the sixteenth century.ContentsSeries Preface Acknowledgments 1 Conflicting Interpretations of Calvin's Use of the Covenant Pt. 1 The Genesis of Covenant Theology: The Conception of the Covenant in Calvin's Historical Context 2 The Covenant Idea in Late Medieval Society and Theology 3 The Covenant in the Theology of Martin Luther 4 The Emergence of the Covenant Idea in the Zurich Strassburg Reformations 5 The Exegesis of the Covenant in Genesis 17: The Hermeneutical Watershed between Wittenberg and the Swiss Reformations Pt. 2 The Genius of Calvin's Covenant Thought 6 Calvin's Conception of the Covenant 7 Continuity and Discontinuity in Calvin's History of the Covenant 8 Calvin's View of the Mutuality and Conditionality of the Covenant 9 Christ and the Covenantal Benefits of Salvation 10 The Agreement of Law and Gospel in the Covenant of Mercy: Calvin's Use of the Scholastics' Covenant of Acceptance 11 Covenant, Predestination, and Hypocrisy in Calvin's Theology 12 Covenant-Breaking, Reformation, and Resistance 13 The Covenantal Context of the Sacraments 14 Covenant-Keeping and the Christian Life 15 Is There a Covenant of Works in Calvin's Theology? 16 Conclusion Bibliography Index
