Our culture has a few catch phrases: Be who you want to be; Do what makes you happy. We are told to do our own thing and follow our own rules, which often makes the Bible appear to be oppressively restrictive and hopelessly outdated, even to Christians! Responding to the misdirection of our society and misperceptions the church has of Gods law, Professor Jerram Barrs helps readers recognize the beauty in and purpose of Gods rules for living healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives. From the Old Testament to the New, Barrs demonstrates how Gods commands to his people were intended to protect them from sin and direct them in godliness. Rejecting the idea that we can earn Gods favor through good works, Barrs nevertheless highlights how Gods commands should spur us to obedience and ultimately remind us of grace.
Jerram Barrs (MDiv, Covenant Theological Seminary) is the founder and resident scholar of the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary, where he is professor of Christian studies and contemporary culture. He and his wife served on staff with LAbri Fellowship in England for eighteen years. Jerram and his wife, Vicki, have three sons and seven grandchildren.
