Item description for The Economy of the Covenants by Joel R. Beeke...
Overview 'The Economy of the Covenants is Witsius's magnum opus. He wrote it to promote peace amongst theologians who were divided on covenant theology. Witsius sought to be a theologian of synthesis who strove to lessen tensions between Christians. Covenants between God and man are essentially one-sided in that they are initiated by God. However they also require human responsibility in order to be implemented. Whilst being one-sided in initiation they are two-sided in administration. God's covenants are his main means of interacting with his creation in a broad sense yet Witsius also shows that a wrong view of the covenants leads to serious error in our concepts of salvation. This book is an outline analysis of Witsius's work. It is a companion to the original to be read in conjunction with it. Using this book you will be able to see how Witsius's arguments progress subject-by-subject. By analysing the work in outline you will be able to grasp the essence of the factors involved in explaining the origin and effects of God's covenants with his creation.
