In This Issue

Included in this issue of Reformed Faith & Practice are selections from two new books. Guy Richard’s analysis of the covenant of redemption is a chapter from Covenant Theology: Biblical, Theological, and Historical Perspectives, a collection of 27 essays by members of the faculty of Reformed Theological Seminary. We offer Dr. Richard’s study to whet readers’ appetites for the book that Crossway will release in late October.

Nancy Guthrie is a popular writer, blogger, and conference speaker, as well as a student at RTS Global. In all of these labors, she strives, in her own words, “to infiltrate women’s Bible studies in the local church with biblical theology.” We are pleased to include an excerpt from her latest book, God Does His Best Work on Empty, published this month by Tyndale House, along with a brief interview with her. Together, these pieces show and tell how to present redemptive-historical studies of the Bible in an accessible way.

We are grateful to Crossway and Tyndale House for permissions to publish these essays.

The newest addition to the faculty of the Washington, DC campus of RTS is Dr. Nathaniel Gray Sutanto. His reflection on the recent translation of Herman Bavinck’s Christian Worldview (on which he collaborated) is based on a lecture he delivered at RTS Washington, just prior to his appointment.
