Format: Paperback
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.

I have still much to learn but this small book has helped in my understanding of the Eternal Covenant. However, I must admit it was hard for me to follow the first half of the book. But this is probably since I was trying to absorb so much new teaching. For those that are not well read take your time and go slow. Those of a more theological or philosophical background may enjoy the book even more than I. This will probably be a re-read for me later in the year.

Ralph Smith is treading upon dangerous ground here. His view of the covenant is close to bringing him out of the errors of Dispensationalism and into the Catholic Church, which is the only Church which is completely aligned with covenant principles. I found his insights refreshing and interesting and wish I could meet him and talk with him about some of the things that he said in the book.
