Overview

The doctrine of justification is central to the Christian faith. However, believers from different backgrounds have a variety of different understandings of what exactly being “justified by faith” means. In this course, five preeminent theologians present their perspectives on justification:

  • Edith M. Humphrey—An Eastern Orthodox Perspective
  • Scott Hahn—A Roman Catholic Perspective
  • Matthew Bates—A Perspective on Faith as Allegiance in Justification
  • Michael F. Bird—A Reformed Perspective Nuanced by Historical Considerations
  • D.A. Carson—A Biblical-Theological Perspective

Each speaker explores what justification is, what faith is, and what the relationship between justification and faith is. You’ll come away from the course with a more distinct understanding of the different positions on justification and a renewed appreciation for God’s work of salvation.
