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?  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.

William A. VanGemeren presents a non-theonomic Reformed view of the use of the Law.

Gerg L. Bahnsen argues for a theonomic Reformed approach.

Walter C. Kaise Jr. maintains that the weightier issues of the Law of Moses are binding on believers today.

Wayne G. Strickland advocates the dispensational view.

Douglas J. Moo proposes a modified Lutheran approach with a clear antithesis between the Law and the Gospel.
