Publisher's Summary

Since the days of the early church, Christians have struggled to understand the relationship between two seemingly contradictory concepts in the Bible: law and gospel. If, as the Apostle Paul says, the law cannot save, what can it do? Is it merely an ancient relic from Old Testament Israel to be discarded? Or is it still valuable for Christians today?
Helping modern Christians think through this complex issue, seasoned pastor and theologian Sinclair Ferguson carefully leads listeners to rediscover an 18th-century debate that sheds light on this present-day doctrinal conundrum: the marrow controversy. After sketching the history of the debate, Ferguson moves on to discuss the theology itself, acting as a wise guide for walking the path between legalism (overemphasis on the law) on the one side and antinomianism (wholesale rejection of the law) on the other.

a must read

This book has been instrumental in not only grounding in my assurane of salvation but has educated me in the different Christian views on how one or if one can have assurance. The book also has enabled me to explain why I have assurance to others. I attend a non-denominational church and i am grateful for the grounding this book has given me since some churches stay away from long standing docrinal issue that can be such a blessing.
