 About the Book 

This substantial work by one of Europes most respected twentieth-century legal minds unpacks Luthers doctrine of law, showing how it derived from his central theological concern, justification by faith.When Johannes HeckelsLex CharitatisappearedMoreThis substantial work by one of Europes most respected twentieth-century legal minds unpacks Luthers doctrine of law, showing how it derived from his central theological concern, justification by faith.When Johannes Heckels Lex Charitatis appeared more than half a century ago, it brought new clarity to the much-disputed issue of Luthers understanding of the law and of Gods governance of his created order. The Wittenberg reformers use of the language of two kingdoms and two governances is still fiercely debated- having Heckels work in English will assist scholars and students alike in putting Luthers insights to use in the context of twenty-first-century problems.-- Robert Kolb, Concordia Seminary
