Law and Grace

$4.99

This 80 page booklet is a great basis for discussion of the role of the Law in Christian doctrine.

From the preface – “Among careful students of the Scriptures and church history, regardless of their theological bias, there has always been general agreement that if there is any outstanding characteristic term in Christianity, that term is “grace.” In much of the New Testament this term becomes almost a synonym for  Christianity itself. Thus in some of the Pauline epistles there are benedictions which mention “grace” alone, with implications that this term covers everything in the Christian faith, and that if we have “grace” nothing else is needed…. Much of the controversy which has attended the Christian doctrine of salvation by grace has arisen about the place of the “law” in relation to the Christian believer who is saved by grace. This was true in the days of the apostles, and it has likewise been true down through the centuries of church history.”
