Christians throughout the centuries have struggled to understand the relationship between God’s law and His grace. Sadly, many have inadvertently neglected either the law and fallen into antinomianism or they have neglected grace and run amuck into legalism. God’s Grace Shining through Law will help Christians young or old to navigate through these two errors and live in joyful obedience to the Word of God. May this volume be both a warning signal and a welcome sign, challenging each of us to examine our standing before a holy God and encouraging our hearts to rest in the grace of God that is ours in the gospel.

Books on the law of God are rare today; even rarer are good books on God’s law that have strong pastoral, biblical, and historical insights. This edited volume is such a book! One might not be immediately drawn to reading a book on God’s law, but this is a book on much more than that. Readers will come away not only with fresh views on the law of God but also on sin, grace, and Christ.
Mark Jones, senior minister at Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church (PCA)
In a time when evil is called good and good slandered as evil, we have great need for the clear light of God’s law to guide us. In God’s Grace Shining through the Law, we hear wise pastoral voices teaching us how God uses the law to clarify, cut, consecrate, and comfort the conscience, for the law is an instrument in the hand of Jesus Christ our Savior.
