This book draws on C. F. W. Walther’s Law and Gospel theses to present and apply these foundational truths to contemporary Christian faith and living.

In 13 chapters, the author explores the rich insights in Walther’s classic text, blending key excerpts with his own reflection and exposition. The author opens his pastoral heart and shares his experiences and understanding of God’s Word to help Christians appreciate—and live in—the rhythm of repentance and faith, of genuine sorrow over sin and heartfelt trust in Christ.

This book is a dialogue with Walther’s text and a fresh exposition of Law and Gospel for modern Christians. The author helps believers to read, understand, and apply God’s Word to life’s many circumstances through reflection and discussion.

This book incorporates questions for personal reflection or group discussion. It uses Walther's The Proper Distinction between Law and Gosepl as the foundation for the discussion.
