In Covenant Theology, author Jeong Koo Jeon makes a much-needed contribution to 21st century biblical and systematic theology. He explores the debate between John Murray and Meredith G. Kline, placing their ideas in the larger context of Biblical studies that have had a direct influence on Reformed theology and evangelicalism. Although the theologies of Murray and Kline contain significant differences, they both maintain a distinction between a covenant of creation and a covenant of grace. In addition, they both advocate a fundamental antithesis between law and gospel, giving a priority to law over gospel in the temporal and logical order of divine works. Jeon sees these distinctions as hermeneutic tools that are essential for better understanding of biblical revelation as well as faith, grace, and atonement.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If read well, Jeong Koo Jeon's volume could serve to dissipate the suspicion that has created unnecessarily a tension among those who really ought to be standing shoulder to shoulder in defense of federal theology?If Jeon achieves nothing else, it is sincerely to be hoped that his study will encourage a lowering of the register of the debate; not least because it is presently counter-productive to the cause of federal theology in the broader Reformed community that extends beyond Westminster Calvinism> -- Dr. Tim J. R. Trumper, Preacher and Theologian, Evangelical Presbyterian Church in England and Wales
On the scholarly level the theologian Karl Barth and those influenced by him as well as the Biblical scholar E. P. Sanders and his advocates have rejected the protestant consensus of the Reformation on the Gospel. They have rejected the historic evangelical distinction between the law and the Gospel and have dismissed the idea of a covenant of works which Reformed theology had developed as a key foundation for understanding the work of Christ and justification by faith alone. On a more popular level, preachers, teachers and laity seem often to confuse the Gospel with either legalism or antinomianism. -- Dr. W. Robert Godfrey, President of Westminster Theological Seminary in California
