Christ our righteousness

Full Product Description

Since the time of the Reformation, considerable attention has been given to the theme of justification in the thought of the apostle Paul. The ground breaking work of E. P. Sanders in 'Paul and Palestinian Judaism' (1977) introduced the 'new perspective on Paul', provoking an ongoing debate which is now dominated by major protagonists. Foundational theological issues are at stake.

In this new study, Mark Seifrid offers a comprehensive analysis of Paul's understanding of justification, in the light of important themes including the righteousness of God, the Old Testament law, faith and the destiny of Israel. A detailed examination of the theme in the epistle to the Romans is followed by a survey of the entire Pauline corpus. The analysis incorporates a critical assessment of the 'new perspective', challenging its most basic assumptions; an evaluation of the contribution of recent German scholarship; and a reaffirmation of the 'Christ-centred' theology of the Reformers. In this wide-ranging exposition of the biblical message of justification, Dr Seifrid provides a fresh, balanced reworking of Pauline theology.

Christ our righteousness by Mark Seifrid was published by IVP in June 2000 and is our 37026th best seller. The ISBN for Christ our righteousness is 9780851114705.

"This is a very significant discussion of key themes in Pauline theology which will require some revision of the new orthodox interpretation. This book is a solid rather than an exciting treatment but some of the conclusions are more satisfactory than the positions he critiques. Highly recommended."

Association of Christian Teachers

"... a book for specialists ... Seifrid offers a wide-ranging discussion with a detailed exegesisi of Paul's theology of justification ... he critically examines some views of modern scholarship. There are detailed footnotes and an extensive bibliography, including recent German writings. This is a book to be studied rather than used for reference." Methodist Recorder
