The systematic ordering of biblical data according to various covenantal arrangements between God and humanity plays an enormously large role in Reformed thinking. Interestingly, however, no full-length study on the so-called founder of covenant theology exists. Lyle Bierma's comprehensive analysis of Caspar Olevianus changes that. The purpose of this study, writes Bierma, 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 Reformed covenant thought. Bierma analyzes all of Olevianus' works on covenant and concludes by challenging the notion that Olevianus was the first to use the covenant idea as the organizing principle of theology. The author contends that Olevianus' most significant contribution was his use of covenant to provide assurance of salvation. German Calvinism in the Confessional Age concludes with a helpful index and bibliography. Historians, theologians and Reformed scholars will find much of interest in this groundbreaking study.
