In this second of three volumes addressing Luther's outlaw God, Steven D.

With remarkable depth and clarity Paulson explores the question: Where do we find a gracious God? Luther's answer was: not in the law! Where then? Only in the publicly executed and hated God, Jesus Christ, hidden in the cross.
