Wes White has recently published a list of books required for reading in WTS-P, RTS (Jackson) and CTS. Most interesting is the reading list for CTS on the topic of Covenant Theology. Here is what we find is required reading for their Covenant Theology (CT) courses.
COVENANT THEOLOGY I — by Michael Williams
|Far as the Curse is Found||Williams, Michael|
|Science and Faith||Collins, C. John|
|He Gave Us Stories||Pratt, Richard L. Jr.|
COVENANT THEOLOGY II — by Michael Williams
|New Testament and the People of God||Wright, N.T.|
|Knowing Jesus Through the OT||Wright, Christopher J.H.|
|Redemptive History & the New Testament Scriptures||Ridderbos, Herman|
Now, contrast this with WSC's required reading (books only) for our Covenant Theology course:
HT566 History of Covenant Theology — by R. Scott Clark
|Commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism||Ursinus, Zacharias|
|Exposition of the Apostles' Creed||Olevianus, Casper|
|Institutes of Elenctic Theology||Turretin, Francis|
|Marrow of Theology||Ames, William|
|Marrow of Modern Divinity||Fisher, Edward|
|The Economy of the Covenants||Witsius, Herman|
|Casper Olevianus and the Substance of the Covenant||Clark, R.S.|
|The Covenant of Life Opened||Rutherford, Samuel|
|Institutes of the Christian Religion||Calvin, John|
|The Christian's Reasonable Service||a Brakel, Wilhelmus|
|A Treatise on the Law and the Gospel||Colquhoun, John|
I find the contrast especially revealing.
Thanks. That is interesting. I appreciate you putting that together.
That's different! WSC has really good choices. Some of the best books.
CTS's choice... the writers are not even orthodoxy for most part. Ridderbos, N. T. Wright, etc. *yuck!
But hey. Want to see TTC's book list?
There is nothing on covenant theology. Lecturer does not even hold to that. And books for OT, far more liberal than those few.
Ridderbos is rather mixed. I appreciate some of his insight into biblical theology, but there seems to some sort of liberal or neo-orthodox slant in that particular book of his.
