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 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.
