HELPS FOR STUDYING BAPTIST COVENANT THEOLOGY

07/28/2016

I am a Southern Baptist pastor who believes in Baptist Covenant Theology. I'm trying to help another SB pastor, who is also a 5-pter, understand BCT. What works would you recommend? Anything--books, booklets, articles, etc. Anything I could download would be especially helpful, but I'm open to whatever I can find. I had a great article, I think by Earl Blackburn, but I gave all my BCT mat'l away to a young SB collegiate minister some time ago. Praise God, many of our brethren are returning to their Reformed roots!

Thanks and may God bless you!
