The Whole Christ
- Product Review (submitted on February 26, 2016):
- This book is tackles a relatively unknown theology by name but common in application called the Marrow Controversy. Originally presented by Puritan Thomas Boston, the controversy examines the relationship between grace and the Christian life, specifically between the two extremes of legalism (valuing the Law too much) and anti-nomianism (valuing the Law too little). Perhaps the greatest strength of this book is its clear reverence for God’s grace. The author examines each of the extremes using grace as a lens. It will leave you with a greater appreciation and understanding of God’s grace in light of some of its greatest critics. The downside is that the author can get bogged down with some of the details. It is also a book that would probably lend a better result from reading rather than listening, though the narrator keeps interested very well. I received this audiobook for free from christianaudio.com as part of a reviewing program and was not obligated to write a positive review. For more information, visit www.christianaudio.com.
