The Future of JustificationTim Leffler, via The Good Book Stall
Dr Piper originally wrote this text as a foil to some of Wright’s writings, and of his own admission, he fleshed it out to nearly double its original size having received a 10,000 word submission from Wright himself. John Piper readily admits that for those of his readers who are not aware of the debate, this book is likely to be challenging reading and he even recommends not getting involved and despite Wright’s private submission to Piper, this is one side of the story – albeit a very good one.
This book is a tour du force on a weighty doctrinal issue. It is full of Piper’s natural grace and charm, but also backed up with his forthright standpoint of tradition reformed theology. It is a technical read that is dense with extensive quotes from Wright’s extensive published texts as well as copious biblical texts by way of illustration and explanation of Piper’s standpoint. This is far from an easy read but it certainly gets to the heart of an issue from one viewpoint. That Piper should produce, and have published, such a thesis on another respected theologian’s work is an indication of how much he believes Wright’s stance to be a direct and significant challenge to his doctrine’s viewpoint. Piper has produced some brilliant works, and this is not up to his normal standard of clarity – but nonetheless it is a good read for those who want to get to grips with this weighty subject. I hope that SPCK will encourage Dr Wright to find the time to respond in a similar fashion and then there will be two texts on which to judge the value of two worthy, but competing doctrines. I enjoy both Piper’s and Wright’s works and I hold both to be great men of God – it is sad that there are such differences of opinion but it makes good reading for serious students. Despite the debate, Piper’s work is suffused with grace and courtesy towards Wright and if nothing else it is a textbook copy of how to debate in a godly manner. All in all a good, but challenging read and certainly not for the faint hearted!
