    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
    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?
