“I find The Justification of God the most compelling and forceful exposition of Romans 9:1–23 that I have ever seen,” says Richard Muller of Calvin Theological Seminary. The Justification of God brings together the best scholarship on and exegesis of Romans 9.
Undergirded by the author’s belief that the sovereignty of God is too precious a part of our faith to dismiss or approach weak-kneed, this book explores the Greek text and Paul’s argument with singular deftness.

Praise for the Print Edition
Written in an irenic spirit with a keen awareness and interaction with all significant scholarly studies on Romans 9. Theology aside, it is a work of scholarship in its own right and the best on Romans 9.
—G. K. Beale, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Piper leads one through complex exegetical issues, engaging important literature fairly, summarizing the arguments frequently, and stating his conclusions (and warrants) clearly.
—Leander Keck, Harvard University
Even for non-Calvinists Piper’s work is too carefully reasoned and stays too close to the text to be ignored.
—David Dunbar, Biblical Theological Seminary
