dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the common ground between 1689 Federalism andProgressive Covenantalism, which warrants a closer identification between the two than currently exists. I demonstrate that Progressive Covenantalism carves out a place on the continuity/discontinuity spectrum whereas 1689 Federalism connotates emphasizes a particular relationship between the Old and New covenants while placing the same emphasis as PC on the newness of the New Covenant. Therefore, 1689 Federalists should view themselves as a subset of Progressive Covenantalism rather than as a variety of Covenant Theology. Chapter 1 summarizes the history of both systems and details the thesis and methodology used to advance the argument. Chapter 2 presents the published interactions between the two systems to-date, highlighting the problems of mischaracterization and misunderstanding that have unnecessarily divided them. Chapter 3 presents the extent of the priorities shared by each system. Chapter 4 focuses on the central point that is said to divide PC and 1689 Federalism: the Law. Broad and narrow priorities are compared and reflected upon. Chapter 5 concludes with several suggested benefits to be gained through a closer alignment between PC and 1689 Federalism.en_US
