Bibliography of some works on Covenant Theology:

(This list is for those who are interested in Covenant Theology.  While it would likely be anachronistic to cite any of these works as final authority for a view on Constitutional Law–with the possible exception of Ray Sutton’s book, That You May Prosper–it is a good list for developing a good understanding of Covenant Theology and how the Eucharist fits within Covenant Theology.)
