Any suggestions re: Why have this, too.

I don't have A Puritan Theology, but based on the description it's a collection of what puritans said about the various theological loci. So for instance:

Soteriology - 

What puritan x said about soteriology

What puritan y said about soteriology

etc.

My understanding is that Joel Beeke and Mark Jones are primarily editors (authoring introductory articles etc.)

On the other hand, Reformed Systematic Theology is a systematic theology by Joel Beeke and Paul Smalley as authors.

Hi, JRB: I took a belated peek: you are exactly right......A small sample:

Covenant and Justification According to Owen, in the protoevangelium of Genesis 3:15, the beginning of the covenant of grace, saving benefits such as justification, evangelical repentance, eternal rewards, and the resurrection of the body were contained, albeit obscurely.9 Speaking of the covenant made with Abraham (Gen. 17:7), Owen notes that the title “God Almighty” is directly linked with the covenant promise. Because of Christ, Abraham and his believing seed received the promise of grace, namely, that God would prove Himself to be a merciful, sanctifying, justifying, and saving God, requiring faith and repentance from Abraham and his seed. The question remains, however, of what Owen means by “justifying” and how, specifically, it relates to the covenant.
According to chapter 19 of his Greater Catechism, justification is “the gracious free act of God, imputing the righteousness of Christ to a believing sinner and for that speaking peace unto his conscience, in the pardon of his sin,—pronouncing him to be just and accepted before him.”10 This gracious justification is received by faith alone.11 Owen’s doctrine of justification reflects historic Protestant orthodoxy on how a sinner is justified before God. The grounds on which Owen argued for such a definition require further investigation.
