Editorial Reviews

R. J. GORE
With clarity of thought and precision of expression, Norman Shepherd focuses the light of covenant theology on such troublesome issues as antinomianism and legalism, election and covenant, and Calvinism and evangelism. All who love the Reformed faith will profit from this thought-provoking work.
JOEL NEDERHOOD
Norman Shepherd reminds us of the pivotal importance of the covenant and of the role of obedience in our lives, and he summons all to recognize how unbiblical the idea of merit is. His insights regarding the covenant and evangelism are especially timely.
Roger S. Greenway
Good Calvinists,' says Norman Shepherd, 'can and ought to be good evangelists.' But some Calvinists have a problem with evangelism. Their problem stems from a narrow theology that focuses on the 'five points' and overshadows the biblical emphasis on the covenant. This book may signal a brighter day for Reformed evangelism.
RICHARD B. GAFFIN JR.
This lucid and highly readable study provides valuable instruction on what it means to live in covenant with God. God's covenant is the only way of life for his people that fully honors both the absolute, all-embracing sovereignty of his saving grace and their full, uninhibited activity, thereby avoiding the perennial dangers of either antinomianism or legalism. The Call of Grace should benefit anyone concerned about biblical growth in Christian life and witness.
