What is the relationship between Godâ€™s love and His law? Is a Christian bound by endless â€śdosâ€ť and â€śdonâ€™tsâ€ť? And does God love us more when we do some things or donâ€™t do other things?
In these discussions, the term â€ślegalismâ€ť is often bandied about. But what is it? And how dangerous is it? In this book, the authors define legalism, show the inherent dangers of it, and also show how it is an insult to the finished work of Christ.
