This book is about following Jesus in contrast to being a typical Christian in America. That is an unfortunate statement. The two – disciple of Christ and Christian – should mean the same thing. But, it doesn’t. In this book the author explains what it really means to follow Jesus.
Does the Gospel abrogate the Law? Or, does the Law still have a place for Christian belief and practice? Are all laws and commandments in the Old Covenant no longer necessary? And if some are still necessary, how do you decide? This book explores five major approaches to this topic on Law and Gospel. Whether you’re wanting to come to a better understanding on the relationship between the two, knowing the various views, or using it to help strengthen your position, or establish a new one for you, I recommend taking a look at this book.
