My New Book: The Newness of the New Covenant


I wrote a book this summer published by New Covenant Media that is now available at their website and Amazon.com. It seeks to show that the old covenant was a temporary administration, and the new covenant ratified by the blood of Christ really is new (not simply a renewal). Christ has brought the promises of the OT to pass in his cross-work. Here are the contents and endorsements:

Bibliography

"There are many truths and themes which unify the entire canon of Scripture, but probably none as important as the theme of 'covenant.' However, Christians have disagreed for years precisely how the unfolding covenants of Scripture relate to each other and how they find their fulfillment in Christ. In this helpful introduction to the biblical covenants, Blake White nicely unpacks the redemptive-historical nature of the covenants that is both thoroughly rooted in the biblical text and which paves a needed middle way between Dispensational and Covenant theology, and which, in the end, shows the glory and newness of the new covenant achieved and accomplished by our Lord Jesus Christ."

"Blake White's essay tackles a matter that is too often ignored. How does the whole Bible fit together? How should we understand the various covenants in the scriptures? How does the OT law given at Mount Sinai relate to believers today? Mr. White leads us on a very helpful tour of these issues, and his work is a good example of biblical theology. I commend his work for your reading and reflection."
