Product description

"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Rom 5:1). When Paul wrote these words he seemed confident he had made himself clear. But for centuries the Pauline doctrine of justification has been a classic point of interpretation and debate in Christian exegesis and theology. And while in recent decades there have been moments of hopeful convergence among the various traditions of the Western church, the fine print often reveals more facets and distinctions than ever before. This volume focuses on five views of justification and calls on representative proponents to set forth their case and then respond to each other. The five views are: Traditional Reformed (Michael S. Horton) Progressive Reformed (Michael F. Bird) New Perspective (James D. G. Dunn) Deification, or Theosis (Veli-Matti Karkkainen) Roman Catholic (Gerald O'Collins and Oliver Rafferty) In addition, editors James Beilby, Paul R. Eddy and Steven E. Enderlein provide an extensive introduction to the issues informing this important debate. This distinguished forum of biblical interpreters and theologians offers a lively and informative engagement with the biblical, historical and contemporary understandings of justification.Justification: Five Views is not only a fascinating probe into Paul's meaning, it is also a case book in theological method."

Review quote

"The strength of this text is realized from the concise and scholarly documentation of each contributor. The reader will greatly benefit by learning the diverse views of justification. Most importantly the text will aid students to better defend their personal position of justification. The editors did achieve their formula for a good multiple-views book: it addresses an important theological issue, the debate is clearly defined, and the conversation represents positions that are distinct from each other."--Joseph Bresnahan, Criswell Theological Review, Fall 2013
