Top Reformed Baptist Resources

A crowd-sourced list of the best Reformed Baptist resources to introduce people to historic confessional Particular Baptist history and theology.

Covenant Theology: A Reformed and Baptistic Perspective

"Baptists who embrace their historic Calvinistic and Covenantal roots have long since needed a robust and comprehensive treatment of Covenant Theology that includes the nuanced interpretations of the biblical covenants that a baptistic hermeneutic requires. This treatment by Greg Nichols does just that and more. As a devotee of the Westminster tradition (including its chapter, 'On God's Covenant with Man'), I differ here and there; sometimes significantly so. But there is so much to applaud in this volume and Baptists will do well to read this volume carefully and with much gratitude. A splendid achievement. I, for one, will insist that my Presbyterian students read it." (Derek W.H. Thomas)

The Distinctiveness of Baptist Covenant Theology

"Pascal Denault's careful labors over the theological texts of both Baptist and Pedobaptists of the seventeenth century have yielded an excellent study of the relation of baptism to a commonly shared covenantalism. At the same time he has shown that a distinct baptistic interpretation of the substance of the New Covenant, that is, all its conditions having been met in the work of Christ its Mediator resulting in an unconditional application of it to its recipients, formed the most basic difference between the two groups. His careful work on the seventeenth-century documents has yielded a strong, Bible-centered, covenantal defense of believers' baptism and is worthy of a dominant place in the contemporary discussions of both covenantalism and baptism." (Thomas J. Nettles)

Covenant Theology: From Adam to Christ

Covenant Theology: From Adam to Christ is a reprint of two seventeenth century theologians, Nehemiah Coxe and John Owen. It amply displays the fact that seventeenth century Particular Baptists fit within the broader Covenant Theology of that day.

A Reformed Baptist Manifesto: The New Covenant Constitution of the Church

This book finds its origin in a series of sermons preached many years ago. Much has transpired on theological fronts since the delivery of those sermons. An attempt has been made, therefore, to update the arguments where needed and add contemporary comment on various theological movements within American Evangelical Christianity. It is hoped that this humble effort will assist confessional Reformed Baptists in articulating their distinctives and help others understand why we believe what we do concerning the New Covenant.

Covenant Theology: A Baptist Distinctive

"This volume gathers into one place a helpful collection of thoughts on an important subject by respected Baptist writers. Those who think that covenant theology is synonymous with paedobaptism will find that notion debunked by the chapters in this book. If you are looking for a good introduction to exegetical, theological, historical and pastoral arguments for a thoroughly Baptist understanding of covenant theology, read this book." (Tom Ascol)

The Kingdom of God: A Baptist Expression of Covenant and Biblical Theology

Is there a central plot to the Bible? And if so, why is the Bible divided into two different testaments? Moreover, how do these two testaments relate to each other? No doubt, it can be overwhelming to traverse the various covenants of the Bible. And it can be difficult to understand the unity and diversity of the Old and New Testaments. The Kingdom of God: A Baptist Expression of Biblical & Covenant Theology explains why the maze of the Old and New Testaments cannot be properly navigated or understood without a knowledge of the dual (law and gospel) nature of the Abrahamic Covenant. For the law of the Old Covenant and the grace of the New Covenant flow out of the Abrahamic Covenant and are wonderfully reunited in the gospel of Jesus Christ. In other words, out of the earlier dichotomy comes the later unity of the gospel message.

The Fatal Flaw of the Theology Behind Infant Baptism

The Fatal Flaw of the Theology Behind Infant Baptism & Covenantal Dichotomism. This book deals with the Continuity and Discontinuity of the Divine Coventants.

From Paedobaptism to Credobaptism: A Critique of the Westminster Standards on the Subjects of Baptism

Dr. Crampton, a paedobaptist for many years, changed his view and has provided us with the reasons why in this book. Its subtitle is “A Critique of the Westminster Standards on the Subjects of Baptism.” This is an excellent book for those looking for a brief but informed look at the Bible and the Westminster Standards on the subjects of baptism.
