Puritans found in the covenant of grace a means of managing the imitatio Christi--a means that came stocked with a bounty of grace and a regulatory standard, a means that offered righteousness both imputative and infused, and that distributed a confluence of causes in a scheme that left all initiative with the Deity while respecting the subordinate causality of saintly hearts, minds, and wills.
To these puritan conventions Crisp subjoins a magnification of the all-sufficiency of imputative righteousness, which at a stroke severs the Perkinsian regime of preparatory works.
Sibbes could "find somewhat contrary to corruption in me, I carry the image of the 'second Adam' about me now," (109) whereas Crisp repudiated infusions of mimetic righteousness for the sake of a singly imputative benefit.
