Christ the Mediator of the Law
Calvin's Christological Understanding of the Law as the Rule of Living and Life-Giving
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"With this very original study, Byung-Ho Moon makes an outstanding contribution to an important but overlooked aspect of Calvin's theology, viz,. the relation of Christ to the law of God. Highly recommended."
--I. John Hesselink, Albertus C. Van Raalte
Professor of Theology Emeritus,
Western Theological Seminary
"Even the law is mediated by Christ so that it came to be the rule of life-giving as well as the rule of living. The law being the rule of life-giving sounds a little strange, this could be because Christ gives life to the law, as Calvin explains. Thus Dr. Moon opens up a new frontier in Calvin studies."
--Chulwon Suh, Chongshin University, Seoul
"Calvin's emphasis on the law of God as a norm for Christian life has to be understood in the light of Christ's role as 'mediator of the law' from first to last. This is the important argument of this mature study of Calvin's wide-ranging writings. It is both a work of exacting Reformation scholarship and highly pertinent to contemporary efforts to vindicate the life-giving character of God's law."
