For the serious student of Justification
5 stars By Wally Bocos, Oct 14 2017
All capable of spending a few hours attempting to grasp the colossal biblical truths explained in this short yet compact book, should do so. Gaffin's handling of the ordo salutis is exemplary! 

Without question the way to handle any argument given by the New Perspective on Paul is to first come to grips with what God IN Christ has done, is doing and will do, By His Spirit on those called to Himself. 

The most helpful in this short book was Gaffin's explanation and discussion on the problem of the indicative and imperative in Paul. When Gaffin states faith as the concern of the indicative and imperative, he also adds a very helpful understanding; 

Faith in its receptivity answers the indicative, while...faith in its activity answers the imperative" 82.

Also his discussion on the "already-not yet" application of Christ's own justification and therefore imputation upon believers found united in Christ is worth the read. It is of great importance that the Reformed community grasp both the already AND not yet elements of Justification.

Enlightening was his brief insight on the union, Christ WITH Spirit, in the believer. At 125 pages it is a labour of stimulating truth!
