After decades of discussion, these two incredible books show that there is still room for mutual understanding between these differing perspectives.
Throughout February, get Justification Reconsidered: Rethinking a Pauline Theme for free! This short study by Stephen Westerholm surveys the Pauline-studies landscape. Over the years, a lot has been written about what the Apostle Paul meant when he spoke of justification by faith, not the works of the law.
Justification Reconsidered seeks to provide a readable treatment of the topic, and it was named one of Desiring God’s Top 14 Books of 2014. This resource will explore strengths and weaknesses on both sides of the discussion.
This month’s Plus One is Douglas Campbell’s The Deliverance of God: An Apocalyptic Rereading of Justification in Paul.
Pushing beyond both Lutheran and “new” perspectives on Paul, Campbell uncovers issues relating to the Apostle’s most famous—and troublesome—texts. The new perspective on Paul is still important today.
