Publisher Description:

"The purpose of this study," writes the author, "is to take a new and hard look at Olevianus' doctrine of covenant and to determine its place in the larger picture of sixteenth-century thought."

Bierma analyses all of Olevianus' work on covenant and challenges the notion that Olevianus was the first to use the covenant idea as the organizing principle of his theology. He maintains that Olevianus' most significant contribution was in using the covenant to provide assurance of salvation.
