In this volume, we receive heartfelt and scholarly essays by some of the greatest preachers and teachers in American Lutheranism today. John Pless provides a wonderful overview of the history of the law and gospel tradition in preaching and theology, highlighting especially the work of C.F.W. Walther. Pless also contributes a chapter on law and gospel preached for the sake of repentance in the penitential Pslams. Mark Seifred demonstrates the absolute importance of this distinction to Lutheran theology. William Cwirla gives us an excellent look at how law and gospel function in the liturgy of the Church. Naomichi Masaki exegetes Luther's description of the proper functions of law and gospel in his later Galatians Lectures. Jim Nestingen displays beautifully how Jesus Christ is the end of the law and how the law will have an eschatological end. Peter Brock, Larry Vogel, Mark Mattes, and Albet Collver all explore the pastoral teholgoical dimensions of the distinction between law and gospel, as it plays out in preaching, missions, pastoral care, and everyday Christian life. Steven Paulson provides a humor-filled exposition of what the law and gospel do to a human sinner. Finally, Stephen Hultgren and Roland Ziegler explain what the "third use" of the law is, and--just as important--what it is not.
Do your self, your parishioners, and your students a favor: pick up this book. You won't be sorry you did.
