Delighting in the Law of the Lord: God's Alternative to Legalism and Moralism
1 in stock
We are steeped in a culture in which people hate being told how to live and idolise uninhibited 'freedom.' What's more, many Christians seem to think the law only leads to legalism and therefore doesn't have a role to play in the Christian life. Yet, regardless of what society or even fellow believers say, we need guidance to truly honour God in everything we think, say and do.
Jerram Barrs helps us recognise and articulate the immense importance of God's commands for godly living as he clears away unbiblical ideas that have crept into our thinking. Looking to the teachings of Jesus, this book will lead you to delight in the eternal beauty and life-changing significance of God's perfect law.
"Jerram Barrs has given us a gripping account of how God's law, understood through the grace released in Jesus Christ, is the best guide we could find... More than a guide, this book is an invitation to see God as our only comfort in life and in death."?
