Law and Gospel and the Means of Grace - CLD, Volume 8
In the newest addition to the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics Series, Dr. David Scaer takes up a topic traditional in Lutheran theology – Law and Gospel. His treatment of the topic, though containing nothing new in the way of doctrine, presents the Lutheran understanding of Law and Gospel in a fresh and compelling way. He explains thoroughly the tension between sin and God’s righteousness and then resolves the tension through his explanation of the Gospel as the grace of God in Christ toward the sinner. In the second part of the book he demonstrates the means God has established to bring this grace to sinners. Dr. Scaer’s treatment of Law and Gospel and the Means of Grace will enable pastors and laypeople alike to understand and appreciate better the heart of Christianity with its message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and God’s mercy as revealed in the Gospel and the Means of Grace which bears it to us.
Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics (CLD) Series is based upon the outline and thought pattern of the Lutheran Confessions. The series is strictly and consciously confessional in its presentation of doctrine and its assessment and analysis of modern theological trends throughout the Christian church.
