Since the days of the early church, Christians have struggled to understand the relationship between two seemingly contradictory concepts in the Bible: law and gospel. If, as the apostle Paul says, the law cannot save, what can it do? Is it merely an ancient relic from Old Testament Israel to be discarded? Or is it still valuable for Christians today? Helping modern Christians think through this complex issue, seasoned pastor and theologian Sinclair Ferguson carefully leads readers to rediscover an eighteenth-century debate that sheds light on this present-day doctrinal conundrum: the Marrow Controversy. After sketching the history of the debate, Ferguson moves on to discuss the theology itself, acting as a wise guide for walking the path between legalism (overemphasis on the law) on the one side and antinomianism (wholesale rejection of the law) on the other.

Don't let the title fool you, this is an excellent book!
Don't let the title fool you, this was an excellent book! Although it is Intended for Pastors, Students, and Academia, it can also be useful to anyone interested in knowing more about the relationship between God's Law and Grace, and gospel assurance. This book was read in a clear way by an outstanding narrator with a Scottish accent akin to the author's. Christianaudio did a fantastic job with this book! Thank you from a busy pastor who tries to squeeze the most out of his day when driving by listening to Christian audiobooks!

Best book of 2016
Must-read for pastors, elders, parents and other teachers. A three-hundred-year-old theological controversy has surprising relevance today. Ferguson is a marvelous writer who can make difficult ideas clear without watering them down.
