The Future Of Justification

Full Product Description

This is a response and critical engagement with Tom Wright’s influential portrayal of the gospel and the theology of justification by faith. Piper challenges Wright’s work by comparing his work to the text of the Apostle Paul’s letters, and in doing, reminds us again of how the glorious mercy of God was revealed to us in Jesus Christ. This is essential reading for pastor’s and theological students, and is a great development in the in the way we understand what Paul really said.
