Product Description

The doctrine of justification as an alien, imputed righteousness has been under attack for several years. Justification by Grace through Faith traces how the doctrine unfolds in Scripture and how, in Christ, God provides everything needed for sinners to be made right with him. Whether we are struggling with legalism, lawlessness, pride, or despair, a biblical view of justification will lead us away from ourselves to the God who accepts us fully in Christ.

The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability-a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.

Brian Vickers biblical theology of justification traces how the doctrine unfolds in Scripture, showing that in Christ, God provides everything needed for sinners to be made right with him.

Endorsements

Brian Vickers is both a brilliant scholar and a faithful teacher. In his new book he offers both theological edification and spiritual encouragement.
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

In creative ways Vickers juxtaposes Adam, Abraham, Israel, and the Mosaic Law respectively with their supreme and crowning counterpart--Jesus, the obedient second Adam, the fulfillment of teh promise to Abraham, and the Atonement as the goal of the Mosaic Law.
-Hans F. Bayer

Vickers has done the church a service, not by laboring through the recent challenges for a negative result, but by offering a positive, fresh exposition from the Scriptures. With breathtaking scope he traces Christ's imputed righteousness from the pages of Genesis all the way to Paul and James.
-A. Andrew Das

Editorial Reviews

The Reformation's doctrine of justification as an alien, imputed righteousness has been under attack for several years now. Professor Brian Vickers has done the church a service not by laboring through the recent challenges for a negative result, but by offering a positive, fresh exposition from the Scriptures. With breathtaking scope he traces Christ's imputed righteousness from the pages of Genesis all the way to Paul and James. Along the way he calms the troubled soul since God's declaration of righteousness does not depend on individual worthiness, whether before or after conversion, and yet the justified are never the same again. Their fruit vindicates the Lord at the judgment.
“Brian Vickers’ Justification is a delightful read with its pastoral warmth and engaging style. Too easily and too often this crucial doctrine becomes merely an abstract, academic debate. Vickers, while aware of the debates, constantly roots the discussion in the impact and benefit this teaching should have for life according to the Scriptures. Vickers’ years of teaching this material in seminary and missions settings is apparent as he explains careful and well, writing in a way that flows easily. I warmy commend it to all.”
“Written discussions of justification are often topical or historical in bent, and understandably so. Brian Vickers has produced a concise and Reformed survey of justification that is exegetical and biblical-theological in focus. Taking us from Genesis to the New Testament—and never losing us along the way—he admirably shows the flowering and unfolding of the doctrine of justification in Scripture. Vickers’ scholarship makes this informed study an important contribution to the literature. Well-organized and accessibly-written chapters, study questions, and a pastor’s heart make it a delight to read. I heartily commend it.”
