Item description for COVENANT, JUSTIFICATION, AND PASTORAL MINISTRY: Essays by the Faculty of Westminster Seminary California by R. Scott Clark...
Overview The doctrine of justification and covenant theology are two of the most basic and yet most misunderstood doctrines in the contemporary Reformed world. This volume addresses both doctrines carefully, biblically, theologically, and practically. Few books address both covenant theology and justification, and relate these two doctrines to our confessions and virtually no treatments address it from the point of view of the theological departments: Exegetical theology, Systematic Theology, Historical Theology, and Practical Theology. This volume is intended for an academic audience but it is accessible to intelligent laity.

Dealing with the New Perspective and the Federal Vision Oct 11, 2007
I have the pleasure of studying under these men at WSC. So, this review might be slightly biased. But, despite my bias, I am convinced that this volume offers a significant challenge to the New Perspective(s) on Paul and the Federal Vision. The contributors do a wonderful job introducing the controversy (although the mention of N. Shepherd and other "fringe" takes on Justification could have been left out, these movements don't really seem to have the popular affect that the NP and the FV do). But they do an even better job providing a significant challenge. I, personally, found the exegetical arguments, by Drs. Duguid Estelle and Baugh, to be the most interesting. But, the historical and the systematic arguments are also very persuasive.
What sets this volume apart from other books on the NP and FV is that it spends a good deal of time on how these issues relate to pastoral/practical ministry. This perspective takes these lofty theological arguments and brings them down to ground level.
For anyone struggling with the challenge of the NP or FV, this is essential reading.
