Length: 220 pages2 hours

Summary

Christians often see the Old Testament law as out of date and irrelevant now Christ has come. Lalleman rejects this view and makes the case for the ongoing importance of the Law in the Christian life - something to celebrate. Most helpfully Lalleman sets out a model for interpreting Old Testament laws in the context of the whole of the Bible. She interacts with scholarly literature on the subject and provides some basic biblical principles for integrating the whole of God's word in our lives. Lalleman then fleshes out by applying them to three difficult topics in Old Testament law - food laws, the cancellation of debts, and warfare. At the heart of this celebration of the law, she contends, is the wholeness, holiness, and integrity of God himself. Celebrating the Law? shows how God calls us to be his distinctive people displaying the same wholeness, holiness, and integrity as he himself has.
