As the doctrinal fountainhead of the Reformation and subsequent Protestant tradition, any innovation concerning justification tends to spark explosive discussion. All too frequently, these incendiary debates favor collateral damage over precision strikes. Alternatively, serious debate across lines of disagreement has often spurred past theological leaders to further, careful reflection and insight. Justification in Perspective is an excellent example of this latter sort of constructive theological dialogue. Each contributor comes from one of Reformed Protestantism’s many strands and examines justification within a particular period or theologian from the early church and Augustine through the Reformers to modern developments in Barth and the New Perspective. Professor Carl Trueman contributes a chapter on Martin Luther’s doctrine of justification. - Matthew Harmon, Westminster Bookstore Staff
