Through careful examination of primary sources, Lillback builds a large store of evidence for Calvins covenant thought. He completely refutes popular claims that predestination and covenant theology were considered incompatible in the early Reformed tradition, that the theologies of Zurich and Geneva were fundamentally different, and that Calvins system left no room for a covenant understanding of theology. The Binding of God is set in the larger context of Calvins sociopolitical and theological worlds. It provides important background to current theological topics, such as modes of baptism and Paul and the law, and is valuable for students of Reformation and sixteenth-century history.
