Details

Are Christians under law? Under grace? Are Christians still under a moral law? Witsius addresses these doctrinal concerns that were raging all over Europe at this time about the nature of law, grace, and the role of the believer. He takes a close look at sin, how Christ justifies the believer, redemption, and the covenant of grace. Witsius discusses, in-depth, the nature of holiness, which, he observes, is the goal of grace and the gospel. This edition also includes cross-references throughout the text.

Author Bio

Hermann Witsius (1636– 708), Dutch theologian, was born at Enkhuisen, North Holland, and studied at Groningen, Leiden and Utrecht. He was ordained to the ministry, becoming pastor at Westwoud in 1656 and afterwards at Wormeren, Goesen, and Leeuwaarden, and became professor of divinity successively at the University of Franeker in 1675 and then at the University of Utrecht in 1680. In 1698 he went to the University of Leiden as the successor of the younger Friedrich Spanheim (1632–1701), where he died.
