Do you struggle with knowing how the Old Testament law aligns with the good news found in the New Testament?
Following up on When Did God Become a Christian?, author and pastor David Kalas explores what he sees as a rather significant hole in so many American Christians’ experience. For many, while the New Testament is seen as the good news of God’s love through Jesus, the law is set aside as tedious, troubling, or irrelevant. Some even see it as an example of an unloving God in the Hebrew Bible.
If we were looking for a ‘review’ on Amazon of the Law, the Psalms would be the five-star. The Psalmist goes on and on, thanking God for it, calling it perfect, and claiming that it revives the soul. In his thoughtful and assuring style, Kalas would like to help readers rediscover that experience of the Old Testament Law.
