I’ve picked on Covenanters a lot in the past. They deserved it. Probably still do. Some of them (whom I know personally) have a tendency to hyper-legalism (emphasis on hyper). The rest are LARPing.
With that said, the history of Covenanting is one of sheer heroism. And the earlier Covenanters (but definitely NOT the post-1688 generations) produced top-rate theological scholarship. And theological piety.
I appreciate the emphasis on Psalmody. I am not an exclusive psalmist. I think much of it is question-begging and these discussions usually end up with name-calling. Notwithstanding, I appreciate the emphasis on psalms. We should all be singing more psalms.
And while scholasticism as huge problems, it was a necessary and legitimate intellectual response to the currents of the time. It allowed theologians to address some problems with remarkable intellectual sophistication.
