Product Description

We pray that in the pages of this book God's people may again hear the gospel message, the good news that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. We are convinced that the most important question that a person can ask is, how can a sinner be in right relationship with a holy and just God?

Indeed, we are convinced that this is the central theme of the Bible. Our prayer is that the teaching of God's Word and the truth of salvation and justification in Christ come alive in new and exciting ways, and that instead of confusion God's people may be have clarity, confidence, hope and assurance. The apostle Paul said it best: "Since we have been justified by faith...we rejoice in hope of the glory of God" (Romans 5:1-2).

Endorsements

Bill Barcley and Ligon Duncan combine biblical scholarship and pastoral skill in addressing one of the crucial issues of our time - the doctrine of justification. With enviable clarity and precision, this book adds to growing number of titles addressing the "new perspective(s) on Paul." At stake is the understanding of the gospel itself. This is the finest summary available of the core issues and a welcome confirmation of the "old" perspective. Gospel-driven churches should make this book a special study.
Derek W. H. Thomas

Barcley and Duncan remind us that the fundamental need of sinners is to be reconciled with God, and that our only hope for such a right-standing with God is the righteousness of Jesus Christ. The new perspective on Paul misunderstands the meaning of justification and fails to see its centrality. Barcley and Duncan in this lucid work provide a clear exposition of the gospel and a needed corrective to the new perspective on Paul.
Thomas R. Schreiner

Justification is perhaps the hallmark doctrine of Protestantism and has thus been over the years the focus of much debate. In recent years a number of scholars have offered sophisticated critiques of the Protestant position, critiques that have become known as `the new perspective on Paul.' For the ordinary Christian, many of the arguments seem obscure and of limited relevance; for that reason, it is a pleasure to recommend this book by two pastor-scholars who not only understand the arguments, but also the immediate significance of these issues for the person I the pew. Highly recommended.
Carl Trueman,
Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia

We are indebted to Barcley and Duncan for providing a clear, understandable and accessible explanation and critique of the NPP.
Robert J. Cara,
Ph.D., Chief Academic Officer, Hugh and Sallie Reaves Professor of New Testament, RTS Charlotte

In recent years, the "New Perspective on Paul" has become a hot topic of conversation within the evangelical church. What is the new perspective? Is it an important issue for the church's reflection? What should evangelicals think about it? We may be grateful to Drs Barcley and Duncan for providing a sure guide to navigating the often challenging waters of the new perspective. This fine book provides the reader new to these discussions with a fair-minded overview and engagement of the new perspective. Readers already familiar with the new perspective will find much biblical and theological food for thought in this volume. If you are looking for a recent and Reformed response to the new perspective, this is the book for you.
Guy Waters,
Associate Professor of New Testament, RTS Jackson

    This book is an excellent rebuttal from the evangelical perspective on Paul. Scholars, even those that disagree, have to respect the scholarship of this book.
