Perhaps inadvertantly, or perhaps deliberately, Paul left out
Meredith G. Kline's Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a
Covenantal Worldview, a book grown out of lecture notes and syllabi
on Genesis and covenant theology courses taught by Kline at
Westminster Seminary in California and Gordon-Conwell Theological
Information about the book is at http://www.twoagepress.org/books.htm
and the book itself is available as a PDF file at
Kline is conservative, but by no means conventional. Anyone want to
argue that Kline is not a scholar?
