N. T. Wright, a world-renowned New Testament scholar and bishop in the Church of England, has spent years seeking "new" interpretations of the apostle Paul's writings. 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." // According to Piper, Wright's confidence that the church has gotten it wrong for 1,500 years, given his enormous influence, set off warning bells for Christian leaders such as himself, a pastor and New Testament scholar. According to Piper, if Wright's views 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. This book is a call from John Piper to all Christians, citing his warnings against "fresh" interpretations of the Bible and his plea to hold fast to what he considers the biblical view of justification.… (més)

A very precise and orthodox answer to the muddy, heretical New Perspective on Paul, yet respectful and considerate of its main modern proponent. Went a bit over my head with the Greek intrincacies at the last few pages. Helpful appendices. ( )

This is a good book but inconsistent at times. Piper suggests on one hand that the very gospel itself is at stake (citing Paul's famous words in chapter one of Galatians), yet he shies away from calling the "new perspectives" heretical. In one moment it seems he is playing the role of a Martin Luther and in another moment he's full of compliments for the genius and scholarship of those with whom he disagrees. Piper is clearly striving to be gracious, but I would have preferred if he were more direct.

I will also admit that this book was not nearly as engaging as Venema's book on the same subject (titled "The Gospel of Free Acceptance in Christ"). Piper is an outstanding pastor, teacher and author, but I found his argumentation confusing at times. I am very grateful for what Piper has done, and I am glad that he has contributed something in response to this dangerous heresy that is creeping into the Church. Still, I would suggest that those who would like to read more on this subject should read Venema's work. I highly recommend it. It is an outstanding resource that not only deals effectively with Wright, but more than that it exalts the glorious sufficiency of the work of Christ. It was not only intellectually stimulating, it was a comfort and blessing to my heart. ( )

Found N.T. Wright's book "Justification" to be much better. I recognize that I carry a bias but I still felt that the scholarship and presentation of concept was handled much better by Tom Wright ( )

Not bad for understanding Wright's covenantal theology in relation to the evangelical Reformed view of justification, but my time would have been better spent on other books this summer. See my review of N.T. Wright's "Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision" as well. Essentially, Piper and Wright seem to be talking past each other. Doug Wilson has some helpful thoughts on his blog: http://www.dougwils.com/?Action=Search&searchstring=n.t. wright ( )

In the final analysis, Piper helpfully calls attention to the spiritual and pastoral problems with certain statements made by Wright. His exegesis has raised questions that may prove problematic, but his argumentation is insufficiently substantiated and positioned against Wright to be conclusive. For one attracted to the comprehensiveness and explanatory force of Wright's canonical and historical reading of Scripture, Piper's more bare bones, expository exegesis will not be compelling. This is not to say Piper is wrong, only that this book does not convincingly demonstrate the inferiority of Wright's interpretations.
