Editorial Reviews


"Catholicity and the Covenant of Works is a landmark contribution to the study of post-reformation Reformed dogmatics. In this ground-breaking and pointed account of the work of James Ussher, the Renaissance polymath and Protestant polemicist who became Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh, Harrison Perkins uncovers the significance of the covenant of works for the thinking of one of the most significant seventeenth-century theologians." -- Crawford Gribben, Professor of Early Modern British History, Queen's University Belfast

"The covenant of works may seem one of the more parochial of Reformed theological doctrines. However, Harrison Perkins examines its exposition in the work of Archbishop James Ussher and shows its development as a reformed fruit of several very catholic roots, ranging from natural law to Christology." -- Michael Allen, John Dyer Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

"In this fine study Dr. Perkins deploys his varied training and many years of study to advance our understanding of James Ussher, establishment Ireland's most innovative archbishop. Along the way, Perkins adeptly dismantles polarities constructed by previous scholars and leaves us with a richly complicated and true-to-life portrait of the impossible: a time when people could maintain both conformist and 'Calvinist' loyalties, patristic and post-Reformation commitments, and predestinarian and covenantal theologies." -- Chad Van Dixhoorn, Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary
