"I strongly suggest that everybody attracted to the thought of Republication learn the $64000 e-book, Merit and Moses. via targeting the guilt of each baby of Adam and the single advantage famous by means of a holy God, the authors minimize to the guts of Republication's errors. They exhibit that to be the case by means of an insightful examine of the Scriptures, of our so much respected theologians--for instance, John Murray, too frequently misunderstood and maligned by means of Republicationists--and of the Reformed confessions, exhibiting that the doctrine of Republication can't be harmonized with the educating of the Westminster Standards."

"This quantity addresses a comparatively contemporary visual appeal of the view that the Mosaic covenant embodies a republication of the covenant of works, a view that during its special emphasis is arguably with no precedent within the historical past of Reformed theology—namely, that in the Mosaic period of the covenant of grace, in pointed antithesis to grace and saving religion within the promised Messiah, the legislations given to Israel at Sinai was once to operate pedagogically as a typological overlay of the covenant of works made with Adam, during which Israel’s retention of the land and temporal advantages have been made depending on preserving a degree of meritorious obedience (works), decreased in its call for to house their sinfulness. The authors topic this view to looking out feedback, either biblically and confessionally. a specific power in my judgment is their displaying that the abiding calls for of God’s holiness restrict meritorious obedience that's whatever lower than excellent and so the impossibility of a well-meant provide to sinners of the covenant of works in any sense."
