Antinomianism: Reformed Theology's Unwelcome Guest?

Antinomianism: Reformed Theology's Unwelcome Guest?

Mark Jones

$24.99

Paperback

an.ti.no.mi.an (noun)-One who holds that under the gospel dispensation of grace the moral law is of no use or obligation because faith alone is necessary to salvation. -Merriam-Webster's dictionary

Hotly debated since the sixteenth century in the Reformed theological tradition, and still a burning issue today, antinomianism has a long and complicated story.

This book is the first to examine antinomianism from a historical, exegetical, and systematic perspective. More than that, in it Mark Jones offers a key - a robust Reformed Christology with a strong emphasis on the Holy Spirit - and chapter by chapter uses it to unlock nine questions raised by the debates.

"The problem of antinomianism is a hardy perennial for the church. There is a mischievous movement afoot at the moment whose soaring rhetoric about grace is matched by an equally casual presumption on the same. Mark Jones's book is thus to be welcomed: it is biblically grounded, historically sensitive, and above all timely."
-Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, PA; Pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church (OPC) Ambler, PA

Informative, if slightly Puritan-centric
4 stars By Adam, Dec 09 2014
This relatively small book could, rather, be titled "Antinomianism, Or What the Puritans Taught About the Law in the Life of the Believer." Indeed, though 'Antinomianism' is on the whole wonderfully insightful ('Amor, Amor') and devastatingly incisive ('The Law and the Gospel'), it is, at points throughout, tediously Puritan-centric. The constant stream of Puritan quotes does, in my opinion, steal away some of the immediacy and flow from Jones' argumentation. Still, Jones makes a number of compelling points, especially by linking antinomianism to a deficient Christology and his concern that an almost exclusive focus upon justification (an applied benefit of Christ's person  work) has subsumed sanctification (another applied benefit). In short, 'Antinomianism' was an exceedingly helpful, if slightly rigorous, discussion of the nuance and complexity that surrounds issue of antinomianism.
