Respected all over the world, N.T. Wright has spent a lifetime studying the New Testament. Yet, many church leaders and traditional scholars have identified significant points of discontinuity between Wright’s conclusions and what many interpreters—from Augustine to today—have to say about “justification by faith” as it is taught in Paul’s epistles.
The Future of Justification, written by pastor and New Testament scholar John Piper, pinpoints where Piper believes Wright has departed from traditional teaching regarding justification. Piper explains why it is crucial that the church not lose the gospel message it has proclaimed for over 1500 years.
