    Which article or book do you recommend for (ex-)dispensationalists that deals specifically with the role and implications of God's laws in the New Testament?

    I'm an ex-dispensationalist, and I have read Sam Storms' Kingdom Come and Keith Mathison's Dispensationalism: Rightly Dividing the People of God?, but it was not the main idea of these books to exegete verses about God's Laws in the New Testament.

    I believe that a work that exegetes key verses about God's Laws in the New Testament, which are misinterpreted by dispensationalists, would be useful.

    Thanks

    Well Philip Ross' From the Finger of God defends the threefold division of the law through scripture, so there is a place to start.
    There is also Frank Thielman's book The Law and the New Testament. I have't read that one but he is a PCA minister should he should defend the third use of the law.

    Patrick Fairbairn, Revelation of Law in Scripture, is excellent.

    By the way, what are these authors' views on theonomy?

    I second the Fairbairn recommendation.

    Thank you Reverend. I'll probably study Fairbairn first (plus, his book is legally available for free).

    Here is the link for Fairbairn's Revelation of Law in Scripture (download).

    Fairbairn precedes theonomy as it is known now by over a century.

    Fairbairn rejects "theonomy" as an erroneous approach to the judicial laws in his book. He of course doesn't use the term "theonomy".
