Description

Antinomianism was the primary theological concern addressed by the Westminster Assembly. Yet until now, no monograph has taken up the specific concerns related to antinomianism and the famous assembly. In Christ and the Law, Whitney G. Gamble sketches the rise of English antinomianism in the early decades of the 1600s to the assembly's first encounter with it in 1643, summarizing the main theological tenets of antinomianism and examining the assembly's work against it, both politically and theologically. Along the way, Gamble analyzes how the assembly's published documents addressed theological issues raised by antinomianism on matters of justification, faith, works, and the moral law. By detailing the assembly's perspective on antinomianism, Gamble's book helps further our understanding of the formation, nature, and growth of Reformed theology in seventeenth-century England.
