Crossway Books & Bibles The Future of Justification: A Response to N.T. Wright

N. T. Wright, a world-renowned New Testament scholar and bishop in the Church of England, has spent years seeking "new" interpretations of the apostle Paul's writings. Among his conclusions are that "the discussions of justification in much of the history of the church certainly since Augustine got off on the wrong foot, at least in terms of understanding Paul and they have stayed there ever since."

Accordint to Piper, Wright's confidence that the church has gotten it wrong for 1,500 years, given his enormous influence, set off warning bells for Christian leaders such as himself, a pastor and New Testament scholar. According to Piper, if Wright's views find a home in the church, not only could the doctrine of justification be distorted for generations to come but the New Testament writers' original intent could be silenced. This book is a call from John Piper to all Christians, citing his warnings against "fresh" interpretations of the Bible and his plea to hold fast to what he considers the biblical view of justification.

Piper gives very insightful expositions on "The righteousness of God" which in turn sheds light on the doctrine of "Imputed rightesousness". It will be helpful if the reader has some fundamental understanding of the "New Perspective" as espoused by N. T. Wright. The author reveals a command of the original NT language and impressive contextual analysis of pertinent NT passages.

superb intro to the subject under discussion and an even better restatement of the time honoured biblical doctrine
