McClain attempts to present a classical Dispensational understanding of strong discontinuity between the Mosaic Law and New Testament. There were no surprises in his interpretation which makes the book unhelpful for those already aware of the classic Dispensational Position. There are better books on the market.
In this short pamphlet, McClain (a Dispensationalist theologian) lays out the manner in which a Christian is related to the Law. If you have questions about the nature, use, purpose, and application of the law both in the past and in the present, this little work does an excellent job laying out the answers from the writer's perspective.
This booklet provides a great summary of the issues surrounding the Christian and the law. I see it as an introduction to the topic, for while some of my questions were answered, many were not. In some places, he simply states a truth without giving much rationale. This makes it difficult to connect all the dots.
