Product Description

Christians often assume too sharp a distinction between the Old and New Testaments, viewing the Old Testament as a book of law (in the sense of commandment) and the New Testament as a witness to grace. This book is an effort to help laypeople see that grace has always been part of the character of God and that the Old Testament demonstrates that fact in a variety of ways.

Publisher's Description

Christians often assume too sharp a distinction between the Old and New Testaments, argues preacher, author, and teacher J. Ellsworth Kalas. They are too quick to view the Old Testament as a strict book of laws and commandments and the New Testament as a witness to grace. The God of the Old Testament is misperceived as a God of wrath and judgment, while the God of the New Testament is viewed as a God of love and mercy.
