Commendations:

“Reisinger charts a trustworthy and rewarding course through the narrow passage. He does so…as a fellow pilgrim, a pastor, and a teacher in the church of Jesus Christ. His passion for the subject comes through on every page…This book not only should be read but should be studied diligently by every child of God who has any interest in seeing biblical Christianity flourish in our churches once again.”

“Legalism and antinomianism are continual threats to the gospel of Jesus Christ. These threats have been around from the very beginning. They are pressing themselves upon the church today. If we would be faithful to Christ and His saving message then we must understand the law and the gospel. What is the gospel? What law are Christians to obey? Why are we to obey it? How are we to obey it? This book helps answer these foundational questions to the Christian life. It is a valuable resource as believers seek to trust and obey the Lord Jesus.

“The relationship between law and gospel is an important key to an understanding of the entire biblical revelation. The purpose of Christ’s incarnation, the nature of justification and sanctification, concepts of justice and righteousness, and the standards by which we will be judged in the day of Christ all fit within the framework of law and gospel. Ernie Reisinger never lost focus on these issues during his entire Christian ministry and has contributed much to give clarity on these important biblical teachings. This book is a must for today’s preachers as we seek to maintain a healthy grasp of our task of being heralds of the gospel.”
