The Covenant of Works
This is the companion volume to Colquhoun’s great work The Covenant of Grace, published in 2020 by The Northampton Press. In this title, the author deals with covenants, imputation, and other subjects necessary to a full understanding of salvation.
John Colquhoun was one of Scotland’s greatest preachers and theologians. He is painstaking and thorough in his treatment of this important subject for, as Luther once remarked, “We ought never to preach grace without the law or the law without grace.” We will never understand our great salvation until we realize what we have been saved from.
“The doctrine of the covenant of grace cannot be understood without a proper knowledge of the covenant or works. The Holy Spirit usually employs it for convincing sinners of their sinfulness and misery. The main design of this treatise is to explain and apply it for that important purpose. I do not see how the gospel can be dispensed faithfully to condemned sinners unless the covenant of works is
pressed upon their attention.”
