Item description for Revisiting Paul's Doctrine of Justification: A Challenge to the New Perspective by Peter Stuhlmacher...

IVP Print On Demand Title This book evaluates the so-called new perspective on the teaching of the apostle Paul and finds it wanting. Stuhlmacher mounts a forthright and well-supported and well-supported critique based on both established and more recent scholarship that sheds light on Paul's emphasis on the judicial/forensic aspects of Paul's understanding of our justification.

Publishers Description
Since 1963, substantial objections have been raised against the traditional view of the Pauline doctrine of justification, mainly by New Testament scholars such as Krister Stendahl, E. P. Sanders and James D. G. Dunn. This book evaluates the "New Perspective on Paul" and finds it wanting. With appreciation for the important critique already offered by Donald Hagner, which is included in this volume, Peter Stuhlmacher mounts a forthright and well-supported challenge based on established and more recent scholarship concerning Paul's understanding of justification. In particular he argues that the forensic and mystical elements of Paul's doctrine of justification should not be played off against one another. Rather Paul's understanding can be faithfully rendered only within the context of his apostolic mission to Jews and Gentiles and the expectation of the coming kingdom of God. This book will be of interest to students and teachers of biblical studies, biblical theology and systematic theology, and to those engaged in Jewish-Christian dialogue, Protestant-Roman Catholic conversation about the doctrine of justification, or discussions of rival views of justification within Protestantism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Revisiting Paul's Doctrine of Justification: A Challenge to the New Perspective?

Pretty Good Response to the New Perspective  Apr 19, 2005
This short book is a good introductory critique on the New Perspective view of Paul (Sanders, Dunn, Stendahl, et al). The book is short and uncomplicated so that the average layperson can understand what the New Perspective teaches and what the criticisms are against it. Stuhlmacher is a German moderate evangelical and generally holds to the traditional Protestant understanding of justification. However, I do have some reservations on some of Stuhlmacher's views. On page 62, he states that the "distinction between 'imputed' righteousness...and 'effective' righteousness...cannot be maintained by Paul. Both belong together for the apostle." Thus, Stuhlmacher is blurring (I assume unintentionally) the line between Trent and traditional Protestantism on justification. Also, he takes the "re-creational" view of justification (p. 73). However, he does maintain that the Final Judgment for Christians "will determine not their salvation or damnation but only their position in the kingdom of God and of his Christ" (p. 69). Thus, he separates himself from those who promote a nomistic "Gospel" that is being preached popularly within "evangelical" circles today. Finally, Donald Hagner's contributory essay (chapter 4) is a must read. Hagner examines the New Perspective and sees whether it has Biblical foundations (which it does not). Overall, a good book critiquing a movement that has influenced a significant section of Christianity today.
