justification by faith' is not just worth reading; it is essential reading. If you have been led to believe that Paul is only concerned with a Gentile problem, not a human problem; that 'justification' means 'belonging to the covenant'; that 'works of law' refers simply to 'boundary markers'; that 'justification theory' must be eliminated from Paul; then you have not been fully informed. And if being well informed on such things matters to you, then read this book."<BR /><BR /><B>Douglas J. Moo</B><BR /> -- Wheaton College<BR /> "<I>Justification Reconsidered</I> is a valuable summary and extension of Stephen Westerholm's fresh and compelling arguments about Paul and Judaism in his Perspectives Old and New on Paul. This book engages with key biblical and theological issues in current interpretation of Paul and is marked by a refreshingly clear and forthright style."<BR /><BR /><B><I>Theology Today</I></B><BR /> "Oldness does not necessarily mean obsolescence. A reading of <I>Justification Reconsidered</I> confirms that and gives the reader a succinct introduction to the issues involved when Pauline revisionists maintain otherwise."<BR /><BR /><B><I>Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society</I></B><BR /> "What I love most about Stephen Westerholm is his ability to articulate and celebrate the freshness of the old perspective on Paul. . . . I cannot more highly recommend Westerholm's new book to anyone who has an interest in Paul. . . . A must read for all seekers of Paul. It is short. It is to the point. It interacts with some key Pauline scholars. . . . Most importantly, it confidently and clearly shows that a traditional reading of Paul, although it may need a tune-up, is in no way in need of a complete overhaul."<BR /><BR /><B><I>Reviews in Religion</I></B><BR /> "A wonderfully written analysis of the key issues in the debate. . . . Could work well as an introduction to justification in Paul for an undergraduate course, or for students at whatever level seeking a summary of recent writings on this theme. It would also be a stimulating read for those enamored withnew perspectives' on Paul, encouraging them to look again at a `traditional approach' to Paul's justification language. In my view, they could hardly find a better guide than Westerholm."
