This book is a dialogue with Walther's text and a fresh exposition of Law and Gospel for modern Christians. The author helps believers to read, understand, and apply God's Word to life's many circumstances through reflection and discussion.

Jodella Catalano5 Stars Out Of 5August 4, 2007Jodella CatalanoPless' introduction to C. F. W. Walther's classic Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel is highly recommended for the ease with which he dives into the material.Pless spends time expositing each of Walther's points on how the Law - Gospel distinction is mishandled not only in the church of Walther's time, but today as well.If you're studying Walther's work with any degree of depth, I would almost make this book mandatory reading as it can smooth the edges of 19th century text.
