Getting the Garden Right: Adam’s Work and God’s Rest in Light of Christ

  • Author: Richard Barcellos
  • Publisher: Founders Press
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 320

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Bible tells the story of God’s salvation of sinners in Christ. But that story does not begin in Bethlehem. It begins in the garden. Adam’s work and God’s rest set the stage for the rest of history. The New Covenant finds its origins in Genesis. In Getting the Garden Right, Richard Barcellos lays out explicitly the key relationships between the events of Genesis and the work of salvation performed by Jesus Christ on the cross.

Nothing shapes how we interpret and apply the Bible as much as our understanding of covenant. Richard Barcellos offers us a helpful blend of biblical exegesis and theological reflection on the implications of covenant theology for God’s relationship with Adam and for the Lord’s Day. Though this book’s discussion is framed by debates among Baptist brethren, the issues are of great consequence to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. It serves as an effective antidote to New Covenant Theology, which, though saying many good things, can still do considerable damage to the church with regard to living out the Christian life practically and experientially. This is a welcome book written in an irenic spirit, and I pray that it will do much good in our day of great need to remain faithful to the biblically and carefully constructed covenant theology of our Puritan forebears. I am grateful that Dr. Barcellos underscores with clarity the vital importance of getting right the scriptural teaching on the covenant of works and on the Lord’s Day

—Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theology Seminary and a pastor of the Heritage Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Richard Barcellos is Pastor of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Palmdale, California.

Teaching Truth, Training Hearts: The Study of Catechisms in Baptist Life

  • Author: Thomas J. Nettles
  • Edition: 2nd

  • Pages: 332

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Truth transforms. The catechisms contained in this book are a rich storehouse of God’s truth. They have been used by many for the purpose of renewing minds and refreshing hearts. Whether using this book for personal study, family devotion, or teaching in the church, you will find it an excellent resource for training the intellect and affections.

As this superb collection shows, Baptists have made ample use of catechisms throughout their history, and they still have practical value for building up God’s people today. I welcome this volume and cheer it on!
