(also called Auburn Avenue Theology)
It is the controversial position within Reformed theology that seeks a redefinition of items such as covenant theology, trinitarian thinking, the sacraments of Baptism and Communion, biblical theology, typology, justification, and postmillennial eschatology. While the proponents of this position maintain covenant theology, it differs in its view of the nature of the covenant. Specifically that the covenant is actually “objective” and that all covenant members are part of God’s family, whether or not they are elect of God. They also promote paedo-baptism, though advocates affirm what can be considered a form of baptismal regeneration. Proponents of this view are Steve Wilkins, John Barach, Peter Leithart, and Douglas Wilson.
