I am about 100 pages into this book and I cannot recommend it highly enough for those interested in really understanding the Covenanter impulse. Even if you think the Covenanters are whacko theocrats whose ideas are 180 degrees outside American religious principled pluralism this work really gets at the heart of what it means to sign your name to the Westminster Confession of Faith; that you are covenanting with God almighty when you stand in front of the Presbytery and say "I do" to the questions of ordination/installation.

Here is as good a definition of the Covenanter conception of the Civil Magistrate as you will find. This long quotation I'd like to point you to is at the bottom of pg. 144 at the paragraph beginning, "It is the duty..." and ending at the bottom of pg. 145 at the end of the paragraph, "...in the Word of God."
