Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.

New Book for Reformed Baptists

Jeremy Walker draws attention to a new book on covenant theology by Greg Nichols here. The perspective is a rare Reformed Baptist one.

Gary,

"rare" in what sense?

Love your blogs.

Thanks!

I am not aware of (m)any books by Reformed Baptists on covenant theology

junior said...

yeah, i'm only aware of about four.

I wasn't sure if you meant rare in the sense of a Book on Covenant Theology form a non-paedobaptist or rare in the sense of a contemporary book on Covenant Theology from a non-republicationist : )

btw, the EP Welwyn Commentary Series is the my favourite contemporary commentary series!

Thanks!

Junior thanks for the kind comments. You've obviously looked at this covenant question more than me.
