Kingdom through Covenant is a careful exposition of how the biblical covenants unfold and relate to one another—a widely debated topic, critical for understanding the narrative plot structure of the whole Bible.

By incorporating the latest available research from the ancient Near East and examining implications of their work for Christology, ecclesiology, eschatology, and hermeneutics, scholars Peter J. Gentry and Stephen J. Wellum present a thoughtful and viable alternative to both covenant theology and dispensationalism.

This second edition features updated and revised content, clarifying key material and integrating the latest findings into the discussion.

Exegetically faithful, theologically profound, and grounded in the interpretive patterns of the biblical authors themselves, this rich, rigorous, and robust edition of Kingdom through Covenant clearly and helpfully charts a course between dispensational and covenant theologies. I know of no better study that clarifies how the biblical covenants progress, integrate, and climax in Christ. This volume is a gift to the evangelical church and academy, and I am confident that it will greatly ground and guide the next generation of pastor-theologians.

Gentry and Wellum offer a third way, a via media, between covenant theology and dispensationalism, arguing that both of these theological systems are not informed sufficiently by biblical theology. Certainly, we cannot understand the Scriptures without comprehending ‘the whole counsel of God,’ and here we find incisive exegesis and biblical theology at their best. This book is a must-read and will be part of the conversation for many years to come.

Kingdom through Covenant is hermeneutically sensitive, exegetically rigorous, and theologically rich—a first-rate biblical theology that addresses both the message and structure of the whole Bible from the ground up. Gentry and Wellum have produced what will become one of the standard texts in the field. For anyone who wishes to tread the path of biblical revelation, this text is a faithful guide.
