Item description for Eternal Covenant: How the Trinity Reshapes Covenant Theology by Ralph Allan Smith...
Overview In this book Smith delves deeper into the discussion at the intersection of covenant and trinitarian theology that he began with Paradox and Truth. Though many Reformed theologians have recognized an agreement between the Father and the Son for the salvation of the human race, few have explored the vast theological possibilities of an eternal covenant that involves all three persons of the Trinity. Instead, covenantal soteriology has focused on the so-called covenant of works between God and Adam, which turns out to be problematic both biblically and theologically. Smith places the eternal covenant in the position it deserves-the keystone of biblical and systematic theology-with profound consequences for the Reformed worldview.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eternal Covenant: How the Trinity Reshapes Covenant Theology?
Very useful in several ways... Aug 17, 2003
This book deals with the nature of the covenant relationship within the Trinity, as well as a treatment of the Covenant of Works. As such, it provides a starting point for understanding these two elements of the Reformed faith. Smith's research is valuable for a concise statement of the variety of opinions expressed over the past 500 years of Reformed scholarship on the topics addressed.
