Publisher's Summary

N. T. Wright, a world-renowned New Testament scholar and bishop of Durham in the Church of England, has spent years studying the apostle Paul's writings and has offered a "fresh perspective" on Paul's theology. Among his conclusions are that "the discussions of justification in much of the history of the church - certainly since Augustine - got off on the wrong foot, at least in terms of understanding Paul - and they have stayed there ever since."

Wright's confidence that the church has gotten it wrong for 1,500 years, given his enormous influence, has set off warning bells for Christian leaders such as John Piper, a pastor and New Testament scholar. If Wright's framework for interpreting the New Testament text and his understanding of justification find a home in the church, not only could the doctrine of justification be distorted for generations to come, but the New Testament writers' original intent could be silenced. So Piper is sounding a crucial warning in this audiobook, reminding all Christians to exercise great caution regarding "fresh" interpretations of the Bible and to hold fast to the biblical view of justification.

No Greater Need Today!

I truly enjoy listening to audiobooks and studying writings from all Christian traditions and theological perspectives. I also find NT Wright’s books stimulating and helpful. However, it is impossible to overstate the current need for clear biblical exposition and clarion proclamation of justification by the imputation of Christ’s righteous alone. God raise up workers to rebuild the foundation of biblical justification to displace religious self righteousness swallowing Your people.

Faith alone

The Faith alone slogan that he mentions constantly has become old and tiresome. The focus should move from the Reformation battle against the church's problems of the day to the context of first century and Jesus' true message of our priestly role in God's good creation. I believe he means well, but just argues from the wrong place, as do most others in his tradition.
