There are few subjects in historical theology about whom more has been written on the basis of less research than Johannes Cocceius (1603-1669). He has been alternately hailed as the “founder” of covenant theology and the corrupter of it. Of course, both claims are historical nonsense. Cocceius was, however, a central figure in the development of Reformed covenant theology in the 17th century. He was a scholar of immense learning but he was also controversial. There is very little reliable literature on him and his work in English, e.g. Willem van Asselt’s magisterial introduction to Cocceius.
Now, however, WSC graduate and URC pastor Brian Lee has published his research conducted under the supervision of Richard Muller: Brian J. Lee, Johannes Cocceius and the Exegetical Roots of Federal Theology: Reformation Developments in the Interpretation of Hebrews 7-10. Reformed Historical Theology, Band 7 (Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2009). If you’re interested in the latest scholarship on a central figure in the history of Reformed theology, you will want to get this volume.
