Publisher's Description

Reformed churches have always been interested in the covenant idea, first the covenant of grace in Christ, but also a covenant with Adam before sin, commonly called the covenant of works. But what the covenant of works really meant in the 17th century, when it became standard orthodoxy, is often very poorly understood today. That ignorance has contributed to modifications which are not always for the better.

About the Author

Rowland S. Ward was born and raised in Melbourne. He holds the BA and Hons BTh degrees from the University of South Africa, and the Diploma of the Free Church of Scotland College, Edinburgh (which he attended 1972-75). In 1994 he was awarded the degree ThD from the Australian College of Theology, Sydney for his dissertation on “Divisions and Unions in Australian Presbyterianism 1823-1901 with Special Reference to the Church’s Attitude to its Creed”.

Brought up in the Presbyterian Church of Victoria, Rowland moved to the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia in 1968 due to the widespread liberalism of the PCV at that time. Rowland is Church History and Research Lecturer at the Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne.
