The Book You Need Right Now: Kingdom Through Covenant

It seems to be book week at this humble blog.  I’ve got a great one for you today: Kingdom Through Covenant by Steve Wellum and Peter Gentry (Crossway, 2012).  If you lean toward covenant theology but are a credobaptist (practicing believer’s baptism), then this very well may be the book that defines your position.
