This video is a well made introduction to recovering the particular baptist view of covenant theology.
Dr. Kim Riddlebarger has been doing an academy series on Two Kingdom theology at Christ Reformed church called In The Land of Nod. In the first lecture he gives recommended reading on the subject. I thought it would be helpful to post those books in a list with links. You can listen to his comments on the books starting at 1:03:58 in the first lecture which is helpful because he doesn’t agree with all of these or recommend them equally.

“Nature can afford no balsam fit for soul cure. Healing from duty, and not from Christ is the most desperate disease. Poor, ragged nature, with all its highest improvements, can never spin a garment fine enough (without spot) to cover the souls nakedness. Nothing can fit the soul for that use but Christ’s perfect righteousness.” Thomas Wilcox from honey out of the rock
Two new episodes have been posted of The Narrow Mind! http://podcast.unchainedradio.com/
Mark Dever with 9marks ministries recently interviewed G.K. Beale. You can listen to the interview here. Towards the beginning Dever ask him about several books and I thought it may be helpful to have a list of those books with links to them. The list should include almost all of the books that either Beale or Dever said where worth looking at. Listen to the interview to hear Beale’s comments on each volume.

Him we proclaim comes from Colossians 1:27-28. This book teaches the reader why and how to see and preach Christ from all of scripture. Reading this as one who is not a preacher I had slightly different motives than most who will probably read it, but I am glad that I did. This book would be helpful for pastors to read but it is not beyond those in the pew, and the content is definitely for those in the pews as well. If pastors are to preach Christ from all of scripture, we out to be hearing Christ preached week in and week out. This book will help you know if you are preaching Christ and if you are hearing Christ preached. The book has two main parts the first is defending the case for apostolic christocentric preaching and the second is showing the how it was done by the apostles and how it is done today. The book can get tough a bit for one like me who is a man in the pew, but is also rewarding getting a better idea of what I should look for in a sermon and appreciation for good sermons and the time it takes a preacher to prepare. Most of all this book helps you to see Christ in the whole story of the Bible and just how great a Savior He is.
