Believers and nonbelievers alike have been wounded by the sharp barbs of legalism. In a fresh take on a timely topic, beloved preacher Derek Prince offers a new way to understand the problem of legalism in the church–and how we can free ourselves from it.
Using the biblical characters of Cain and Abel, Prince shows how a faith consumed with upholding the law leads to bitterness, judgment, and selfish actions. He demonstrates that we can never live up to the letter of the law, and that striving for perfection keeps us from experiencing the freeing power of grace. In the upside-down kingdom, says Prince, it is only through embracing grace that we are able to keep the righteous requirement of the law as we were commanded.
