In the New Covenant context, the requirements of the Law are swallowed up by New Covenant Law. Accordingly, Laws given through Moses are applicable to God's New Covenant people only as reframed by Messiah Jesus.
The author shows that the Covenant Theology view of "One Covenant - Two administrations" is a logical system which contains a measure of truth, yet does not fully square with Scripture. In failing to face the reality of a change of covenants, it tends to make Moses a greater lawgiver than Messiah Jesus and reduces Jesus to the status of the greatest interpreter of Moses.
As Reisinger states: "The life and worship of the New Covenant people of God is built on the New Covenant Scriptures given through the apostles and prophets. The church is bound to obey the commandments given to her by her new lawgiver - Jesus Christ - in the form in which he issues those commands." (p.128) Amen!
The book is aimed more directly at Covenant Theology, but the same mistakes are made by most christian denominations and schools of theology. The points are repeated quite often, but this is not a bad thing. First of all, they need to be sort of beaten into most peoples heads simply because the false teaching that is being corrected by this book has been beaten into their heads. Secondly, the scriptures themselves repeat the same points (on this subject) numerous times as well.
The reason I don't give the book 5 stars is simply because the author uses polygomy as an example of a now sinful behaviour, yet unlike the rest of the book, gives no scriptural backing for his view.
