The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man is considered to be Herman Witsius’ most significant work. In a reflection on what is known as covenant theology, Witsius examines how the idea of covenant provides a unified theological framework for the Scriptures.
In volume two, Witsius focuses on elements of grace and salvation in the Old Testament, all the while examining Christ’s fulfillment of the law and instigation of a new covenant of grace. His invaluable Old Testament insight puts it in context with the New Testament, presenting a holistic view of the entire Bible. A discussion of sacraments in conjunction with the idea of covenant gives the greater understanding of how thoroughly integrated the idea of covenant really is.
