This is a timely book, written for a generation that has lost sight of moral standards, a generation to which "right" and "wrong" seem to have lost their meaning. Dr. Kevan shows that the Puritans, contrary to popular opinion, succeeded more than any other group of Christians in walking the razor's edge between legalism and antinomianism. He explores the Biblical teaching of the indispensable place of God's Law in the life of the Christian, and the spiritual character of the Law as God's gracious solution to our modern dilemma.
Dr. Kevan was principal of the London Bible College until his death in 1965. It includes chapters on the law of God for man, the law and sin, the place of law in the purpose of God, the continuance of moral obligation, Christian lawkeeping, and several others, including a chapter on Christian freedom. This book has much to add to the current controversy over Lordship salvation, as Kevan proves that God's law and God's grace are not enemies, but rather allies in bringing men to repentance and faith and in leading them towards perfection in Christ. This is an excellent theological introduction to the Puritans.
