      I have heard a great deal over the years at Westminster concerning their view. I have been essentially shooting in the dark on my own exploration of Covenant theology outside the Westminster hermeneutic. The problem at Westminster is that there is a blackballing of Murrayan Covenant theology.
      Can you direct me where to look on rescources that are more up to date than, yet following the vein of, Murray?

      Hi Ben,
      Well, the link I provided is a review of Rev. Fesko's book he edited titled _The Law is not of Faith_ and the reviewers are very critical of the essays that appear in that book, to the point that they call the position espoused therein as heterodoxy.  They also view their review as a warning to the Reformed Church. 
      In fairness to both parties my take is this: If the reviewers are very serious and alarmed, then those that are in the same denomination as those they are critical of should resolve this in their respective  Church Courts.  Seems the OPC did something similiar in the case of Lee Irons. So take it there. If nothing is really done, then to me it is just some academic excercise that does not warrant people using the words "heterodox" and such.  No Church discipline equals No Church.
      Ben, I refer you, again in fairness to this point, to one of your professors Dr. Clark, who has given a reply to the reviewers. I think with this info, you will have your question/concern addressed.
      Hope this helps?
