Grace of Law, The
A Study in Puritan Theology
Share |

In this study, Ernest Kevan investigates the works of numerous seventeenth-century theologians to provide an overview of a Puritan understanding of the law in relationship to the life of the Christian. After describing the Puritans and the antinomian controversy that developed among them, Kevan demonstrates how the orthodox view among the Puritans regarded the moral law as an expression of Godís majesty established as a guide for manís blessedness and a measure to expose sin. He then proceeds to show how the law relates to Godís people after the fall in the context of the covenant of grace. Great care is used to explain the relation of Christís work to the law, the ongoing moral obligation Christians have to the law, the idea of gospel obedience, and the Christianís freedom from the lawís condemnation. Although the Puritans saw law and grace as opposing principles regarding oneís justification, they did teach about how God ultimately uses the law in the life of the believer for His gracious purposes.
