Item description for Justification: What's at Stake in the Current Debates by Mark Husbands & Daniel J. Treier...

Overview
It is not just one word among many, but it is a central reality for which Christians are thankful to God. Consequently, a faithful understanding of justification is not merely a concern of academic theologians but of all Christians. Discussion of this crucial matter reached a watershed during the Reformation, but concerns raised since then have not all been resolved throughout the church. In fact, current debates, even controversy, about justification among Protestants and between Protestants and Roman Catholics have been chronicled for general readers in periodicals such as Christianity Today and Books and Culture. In Justification Mark Husbands and Daniel J. Treier bring together notable evangelical scholars and teachers to address from biblical, historical, theological and ecumenical perspectives key questions that prevent complete unity between Roman Catholic and Protestant branches of the church and raise tensions even among Protestant denominations. Witnessing to certain signs of hope, these essays also acknowledge points of caution. But for every reader who is looking for guidance and orientation to this doctrine and current discussion, this book provides a wealth of charitable yet incisive insight. Key questions addressed in the volume include:
  • Does the doctrine of imputation of Christ's righteousness need to be rethought, or does it faithfully reflect biblical teaching?
  • How should the faith and transformation of the believer be understood in connection with our justification?
  • What is the connection between our union with Christ and justification?
  • What can we learn from Lutheran, Wesleyan and Anglican perspectives on justification?
  • What does the Lutheran-Catholic Joint Declaration of 1999 contribute to current ecumenical discussions, and what prospects are there for real theological and ecclesiological reconciliation?
These and other questions about the vital fact of justification for Christian salvation remain of central importance for the preaching, teaching, believing and unity of the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Justification: What's at Stake in the Current Debates?

I liked the debate between Carson and Gundry  May 24, 2005
"The current reviewer's opinion is that the most important essays in this volume are the ones written by Carson and Gundry. At the end of the day, the debate over justification is a debate over Paul, and this is precisely what their essays discuss. It is interesting that so little of the volume addresses the debate on the so-called 'New Perspective' on Paul. There will be a Copernican revolution in conservative systematics and biblical theology if this new paradigm carries the day. Thus, we would like to have seen more interaction on this subject. Nevertheless, this volume is useful in setting forth a variety of contemporary perspectives on this seminal doctrine."

Not Bad  Aug 13, 2004
Here is a book from various scholars that deals with the very important (and often, contentious) doctrine called justification. The contributors of this book come from various backgrounds - from Baptist to Roman Catholic. The book is divided into four sections: 1) Justification in Biblical Theology; 2) Justification and the Crisis of Protestantism; 3) Justification in Protestant Traditions; and 4) Justification and Ecumenical Endeavor. The quality of the essays are a mix bag. Some notable essays were written by Robert H. Gundry, D. A. Carson, Mark A. Seifrid, and A. N. S. Lane. Gundry's article dealt with the issue of whether the Bible advocates "imputed righteousness" (which he denies). Carson's essay was a response to Gundry's, and he argues that imputation is something that is clearly spoken of in Scripture. Seifrid's article is interesting since he deals with the doctrines of justification in Luther, Melanchthon, and Paul. Surprisingly, Seifrid argues that Luther held to a more dynamic view of justification and that modern Protestants really follow the highly forensic model of Melanchthon (Seifrid holds to the dynamic model and tries to put Luther on his side - which is a questionable reading of Luther). Lane's article on the Regensburg Colloquy (1541) was quite interesting. Lane argues that modern Protestants and Roman Catholics should learn from this Colloquy as a possibility for them to reach a consensus. (Whether Lane succeeds in convincing the reader is questionable since Regensburg did contain some ambiguous statements that would make most Protestants - especially Lutheran and Reformed Protestants - uncomfortable.) The other essays were either mediocre or unhelpful. Bruce L. McCormack gives the reader a pretty good overview of the doctrine in the history of the Western Church. Robert Kolb gives a good Lutheran understanding of justification. Paul D. Molnar's essay on justification in Karl Rahner and Karl Barth might be of interest to those who are doing research on those two notable theologians. And Kenneth J. Collins' essay on Wesley's view of justification is very eye-opening. He argues that Wesley only saw PAST sins removed during the time of justification (this was to safeguard against any form of antinomianism). Collins' essay shows that Wesley was definitely not in accord with Luther, Calvin, and the Reformation tradition on this matter. The essays by Philip G. Ziegler ("Justification and Justice: The Promising Problematique of Protestant Ethics in the Work of Paul L. Lehmann") and Geoffrey Wainwright ("The Ecclesial Scope of Justification") did not help much to add anything insightful into the whole discussion (especially the latter's). Overall, an interesting and informative book. The only complaint I have is that the book should have been indexed (as the reviewer below pointed out). With a book of this nature, a Scripture, subject, and name index could go a long way. Perhaps, there will be a future edition where the editors will include an index for the benefit of the readers.
 
Helpful essays  Jun 5, 2004
A collection of essays well worth reading. D. A. Carson's chapter on imputation is especially helpful. I can't resist, however, pointing out an inexcusable omission for an academic book: no indexes! No Scripture index; no person index; no subject index. Very strange and frustrating.
