4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. F Foster on March 25 2004
Format: Paperback
I'm giving this book 5 stars even though I do not agree with everything that Robertson puts forth here. This book has been on the market for nearly 25 years now, and it remains a standard resource addressing covenant theology that scholars across the theological spectrum still interact with today.
Robertson's book was, and is, a distinctive contribution to covenant theology. Unlike some of his contemporaries like the great John Murray, Robertson appears to argue for the conditionality (to varying degrees) of each Biblical covenant, rather than trying to determine which covenants were allegedly conditional versus unconditional. However, where certain contemporary covenant theologians stress covenants in the context of the Kingdom of God, Robertson stresses covenants in the context of human redemption. The reader should therefore understand that Robertson's version of covenant theology, while having many similarities with virtually all forms of conservative Reformed covenant theology, is not the only version that has been proposed and argued for.
The book does show its age in spots. His chapter interacting with dispensationalism was spot on 25 years ago, but not now. The progressive dispensational movement of today does not look a whole lot like the dispensationalism that Robertson interacts with here. But more importantly for Reformed readers, Robertson's emphasis on covenants that are not explicitly mentioned in Scripture is a feature that is also on the wane in today's covenantal circles. Robertson forcefully argues for the 'covenant of works/covenant of grace with Adam' structure that is outstanding in my view, but is a feature of covenant theology that's becoming less and less stressed today.

Robertson examines covenant theology as an overarching system to organize Biblical redemptive history. Robertson makes a case for the interdependence of each covenant up and over against the distinctiveness of dispensationalism.
Robertson promotes the view that each successive covenant was a progression in God's redemptive plan and that each covenant in its uniqueness was in ways a revealing of a different aspect of that ultimate plan of redemption.
I recommend this book to anyone interested at a fuller understanding of the Bible as a whole and those seeking to understand the role of the Biblical covenants. This book is an excellent treatment of redemptive history.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Robertson's book is well worth the reading for those seeking a very, very basic introduction to the idea of the system of covenants in Scripture being not Dispensations but part of a united whole. It comes from a Reformed/Calvinistic background. It is most likely written from a a-millenial which some post-millenialists may not appreciate. The author is also very repititive in his remarks which methinks is necessary. The book could have been much shorter without the redundancy. Nonetheless, a good primer for those seeking information on the covenants.
