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.

The Grace of Law 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 has accurately subtitled this work "A Study In Puritan Theology." He shows that the Putitans, contrary to popular opinion, succeeded more any than any other group of Christians in walking the razor's edge between legalism and antinomianism. Our Puritan forefathers thus redered "a service to the Christian doctrine sanctification which cannot be overestimated," and which Christians today cannot afford to ignore. Not only was Puritan doctrine "governed" by a deep reverence for glory of God and complete submission to the exclusive authority of Scripture, but it was also very practical.^^Dr. Kevan 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. The author prones that God's Law and God's grace are not enemies but rather alllies in bringing men to repentance and faith and in leading them continually toward perfection in Christ. To those deeply concerned about the earnest, practical life of goliness that will please and glorify their Redeemer, this book will prove anew that God's Law is the Christian's delilght.
