The Covenant of Grace Opened
Thomas Hooker (1586-1647) was a popular New England English separatist Pilgrim.
In this powerful treatise on the covenant of grace, Hooker teaches from Genesis 17:23, “And Abraham took... More > Ishmael...and all that were born in his house…and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin…as God had said unto him.” He covers, 1. What the Covenant of Grace is, 2. What the seals of the covenant are, and 3. Who the parties and subjects are fit to receive these seals. Here he proves and vindicates infant baptism.
His explanation is poignant, clear, practical and eminently biblical. He shows what the covenant of grace is, who are those capable of being in covenant with God, the operation of the spirit, the importance of federal holiness, and the lawful administration of the covenant seals. (His section on federal holiness is worth the cost of this volume alone.)
