The God of the Old Testament was one of massive power and vengeance, but what of the God of the New Testament?

Intellectual and scholarly, "Christ and the Judgment of God" carries much to think about, and gives readers insights that can't be found elsewhere. Now in an updated second edition, "Christ and the Judgment of God" is a strong recommendation for any Biblical scholar, be they professional or amateur.
Wrong picture for the cover... Jun 22, 2009
The author tried to save the sola fide doctrine with this book, but he could not do it. He argues that while elements of retribution are present in each strand of the New Testament, they are remarkably infrequent, but the fact is that there`s not a single instance in the New Testament where faith is the final criteria in the final judgment. We`ll be judged by our works and this is the clear teaching of the Old and New Testaments. Read a couple of books written by evangelical scholars: Did Jesus Teach Salvation by Works?: The Role of Works in Salvation in the Synoptic Gospels (Evangelical Theological Society Monograph) written by a Dallas Semminary NT scholar, and Judgment & Justification In Early Judaism And The Apostle Paul written also by a protestant scholar. In both of them you will confirm that works are conditions to receive final salvation and salvation by faith alone doctrine is wrong. I prefer what God says in the Scripture: Jesus says: "For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 5:20). And for Matthew righteousness is God`s will, love for God and the needy (Mt 6:1ff).
