Five Views on Law and Gospel (Counterpoints)



Do the Law and the Gospel belong to two separate dispensations? Has the Gospel replaced the Law? What is the relevance of the Old Testament Law to our lives as Christians? Is there continuity between it and what Christ expects of us in the Gospel? It is no secret that Christians have differed widely on these questions. This book explores five major approaches to this important biblical topic that have developed in Protestant circles. Each of the five authors presents his particular perspective on the issue and responds to the other four.

  • The Law is the Perfection of Righteousness in Jesus Christ: A Reformed Perspective, Willem A. Vangemeron
  • The Theonomic Reformed Approach to Law and Gospel, Greg L. Bahnsen
  • The Law as God's Gracious Guidance for the Promotion of Holiness, Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.
  • The Inauguration of the Law of Christ with the Gospel of Christ: A Dispensational View, Wayne G. Strickland
  • The Law of Christ as the Fulfillment of the Law of Moses: A Modified Lutheran View, Douglas Moo
