Product Description

Not since the sixteenth century has the doctrine of justification stood so clearly at the center of theological debate as it has in the last thirty years. This often polemical dialogue has been fueled particularly by discussions on the "New Perspective on Paul." This important collection draws together diverse voices, committed to an irenic engagement, to explore the historical development and contemporary understandings of the Protestant doctrine of justification.

Justification in Perspective assesses major contributions of the Christian tradition to the subject. This volume constitutes a progress report on the state of the Protestant doctrine of justification in the midst of challenge and change and serves as a way station to greater understanding and resolution. Contributors include Mark Bonnington, Nick Needham, David F. Wright, Carl Trueman, Karla W|bbenhorst, Anthony N. S. Lane, A. T. B. McGowan, Bruce L. McCormack, Henri A. Blocher, Simon Gathercole, and N. T. Wright.

Bruce L. McCormack (Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary; Dr. theol. h.c., Friedrich Schiller University) is the Frederick and Margaret L. Weyerhaeuser Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. A world-renowned Barth scholar, he is a frequent writer and lecturer on topics of Reformed theology.

Publisher's Description

The last thirty years have seen much scholarly debate surrounding the Protestant doctrine of justification. These discussions have especially been fueled by the development of the "New Perspective on Paul," which goes against the traditional understanding of first-century Judaism as a legalistic and works-based system and so changes our understanding of Paul's writings on justification in the New Testament.

This major work presents a historical survey of the doctrine's development from the early church through the Reformation and on to today. Contributors include Henri Blocher, Tony Lane, Bruce McCormack, Carl Trueman, David Wright, and N. T. Wright. Though these distinguished authors have different perspectives, they approach the topic graciously, making for a constructive dialogue that will help pastors, students, and interested laypersons wrestle with this important theological issue.
