The distinction between the Law and the Gospel is an often-overlooked necessity when comprehending Scripture. Law and Gospel are not meant to be balanced or coordinated; rather, they should be rightly distinguished. This distinction is not a theoretical abstraction but a functional necessity for preaching and pastoral care lest sinners be left with their own attempts at righteousness, which can lead only to arrogance or despair.

The thirteen exploratory essays in The Necessary Distinction work through the implications of this distinction for preaching, pastoral care, liturgy, mission, and Christian living. Each essay will draw readers into a deep look at the Holy Scriptures so that Christ Jesus is preached with greater clarity and broken sinners are given the full consolation of the forgiveness of sins.

This material is being released for study and discussion purposes, and the author(s) is (are) solely responsible for its contents. It has not been submitted to the process for doctrinal review stipulated in the Bylaws of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and does not necessarily reflect the theology of the Lutheran Confessions or the doctrinal position of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. (From the 2016 LCMS Handbook, Bylaw 1.9.1.1 [b], p. 35.)
