Through a discussion of Biblical texts, this book presents four perspectives on the role of works at the final judgment including: Robert N. Wilkin: Works will determine rewards but not salvation: At the Judgment Seat of Christ each believer will be judged by Christ to determine his eternal rewards, but he remains eternally secure even if the judgment reveals he failed to persevere in good works (or in faith). Thomas R. Schreiner: Works will provide evidence that one actually has been saved: At the final judgment works provide the necessary condition, though not the ground for final salvation, in that they provide evidence as to whether one has actually trusted in Jesus Christ. James D. G. Dunn: Works will provide the criterion by which Christ will determine eternal destiny of his people: Since Paul, Jesus, and the New Testament writers hold together 'justification by faith and not by works' with 'judgment according to works', we should not fall into the trap of playing one off against the other or blend them in a way that diminishes the force of each. Michael P. Barber: Works will merit eternal life: At the final judgment, good works will be rewarded with eternal salvation. However, these good works will be meritorious not apart from Christ but precisely because of the union of the believer with him.

Great little book
4 stars By Gary, Aug 18 2017
Don't judge by the size of the book.  The insight from the leading scholars were very helpful. Tom Schriener were the most traditional but also fresh.  Dunn view were useful but not too convincing  but it does help those who blindly interpret Salvation based on faith alone.  Wilkin's position sound great but lack biblical exegesis evidence to support it.  Barber views was quite welcome since he is from the Catholic camp, which helps to breaks some barriers between Christian and Catholic.  

Stanley overall summary is quite useful .  Overall a great book to read.
