Few issues are more central to the Christian faith than the nature, scope and means of salvation. Many have thought it to be largely a transaction that gets one to heaven. In this riveting book, N. T. Wright explains that God's salvation is radically more than this.
^^At the heart of much vigorous debate on this topic is the term the apostle Paul uses in several of his letters to describe what happens to those in Christ--justification. Paul uses this dramatic image from the law court to declare that Christians are acquitted of the cosmic accusations against them. But justification goes beyond this in Paul's writings to offer a vision of God's future for the whole world as well as for his people.


^^Here in one place Wright now offers a comprehensive account and defense of his perspective on this crucial doctrine. He provides a sweeping overview of the central points in the debate before launching into a thorough explanation of the key texts in Paul's writings. While fully cognizant of tradition and controversy, the final authority for his conclusions is the letters of Paul themselves.


^^Along the way Wright responds to critics, such as John Piper, who have challenged what has come to be called the New Perspective. For Wright, what Paul means by justification is nothing less than God's unswerving commitment to the covenant promise he made to bless the whole world through Abraham and his family.


^^This irenic response is an important contribution for those on both sides of the debate--and those still in between--to consider. Whether you're a fan of Wright's work or have read his critics and would like to know the other side of the story, here is a chance to interact with Wright's views on the issues at stake and form your own conclusions.

'Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ' (Romans 5:1). When Paul wrote these words he seemed confident he made himself clear. But for centuries the Pauline doctrine of justification has been a classic point of debate in Christian exegesis and theology. And while in recent decades there have been moments of hopeful convergence among distinctions than ever before. Following a helpful introduction by the editors, this distinguished forum of biblical interpreters and theologians offer a lively and informative engagement with the biblical, historical and contemporary understanding of justification. The result is not only a fascinating probe into Paul's meaning but also a case book in theological method.
