`without doubt a milestone in the dogma-historical research on the covenant. ... The bibliography is superb, and is updated till 1989. It is helpful not only for students of covenant theology per se, but also for related topics, such as Puritanism, Ramist influence in Calvinist thought, and the sacraments in Reformed theology.

Richard A. Muller, Fuller Theological Seminary, The Journal of Religion
