Counted Righteous in Christ

John Piper

Counted Righteous in Christ

John Piper

$12.99

Paperback

A lucid and compelling examination of a key aspect of justification by faith.

Are Christians merely forgiven, or does God credit them with righteousness of Christ? This is a central question in contemporary challenges to the historic Protestant understanding of justification by faith.

In response, John Piper offers a lucid and compelling examination of the doctrine of Christ's righteousness and its role in the justification of sinners. He combines careful exegesis of biblical texts with a pastor's heart for the welfare of the church, to show that we need to see ourselves as the recipients of the imputation of Christ's righteousness. This is the basis of our full acceptance with God and everlasting inheritance of life and joy. 144 pages, from IVP.

Meet the Author

John Piper

John Stephen Piper was born 11 January 1946 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper. The Pipers soon moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where John spent his growing-up years. His father was an itinerant evangelist who also ministered through international radio and Bible courses. John has written a tribute to his mother, who died in 1974, in the booklet, What's the Difference (Crossway Books, 1990) which is also chapter one of the book, Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (Crossway Books, 1991).

At Wheaton College (1964-68), John majored in Literature and minored in Philosophy. Studying Romantic Literature with Clyde Kilby stimulated the poetic side of his nature and today he regularly writes poems to celebrate special family occasions and rich, biblical truths. At Wheaton John also met Noel Henry whom he married in 1968.

Following college, John completed a Bachelor of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California (1968-71). While at Fuller, John discovered the writings of Jonathan Edwards.

John did his doctoral work in New Testament Studies at the University of Munich, Munich, West Germany (1971-74). His dissertation, Love Your Enemies, was published by Cambridge University Press and Baker Book House (and is now available through Crossway). Upon completion of his doctorate, he went on to teach Biblical Studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota for six years (1974-80).

In 1980, sensing an irresistible call to preach, John became the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he ministered for 33 years, until 2013. Together with his people, John was dedicated to spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ - a mission he continues now for the wider church through the ministry of desiringGod.org. John says of his ministry:
"The ministry of preaching is the central labor of my life. My prayer is that through that ministry and everything else I do the great glory of our God and Savior Jesus Christ would be magnified as more and more people come to live out the obedience of faith more and more deeply."

John is the author of over 50 books and now frequently travels to speak, and writes regularly, through Desiring God.

John and Noel have four sons, a daughter, and twelve grandchildren.

Very detailed and deep exegesis on justification
4 stars By Julz, Apr 17 2015
This book may be little in size, but its contents are very deep. Piper did a very detailed exegesis on the doctrine of justification (Romans 4 - 5), a doctrine that is often viewed as too good to be true, and therefore a lot of the times misunderstood. Moreover, Piper argued against statements of Robert Gundry about this doctrine that is not true. This book is readable for the laymen, but they need to put 100% concentration when reading this book. But surely, their efforts will not be wasted, as Piper said at the beginning of the book, "Raking is easy, but all you get is leaves. Digging is hard, but you might find gold". Happy digging.
