In Justification: What’s at Stake in the Current Debates Mark Husbands and Daniel J. Treier bring together notable evangelical scholars and teachers to address from biblical, historical, theological and ecumenical perspectives key questions that prevent complete unity between Roman Catholic and Protestant branches of the church and raise tensions even among Protestant denominations. Witnessing to certain signs of hope, these essays also acknowledge points of caution. But for every reader who is looking for guidance and orientation to this doctrine and current discussion, this book provides a wealth of charitable yet incisive insight.

“The imputation—that is, charging—of our sins to Christ is not in dispute.” (Page 18)

“But the object of God’s counting is faith in Christ, not Christ as the object of faith. To include Christ in the faith that God counts as righteousness would be to confuse the object of faith with faith as the object of imputation or, more simply, to confuse faith with its object.” (Pages 22–23)

“The issue is how the cross and δικαιοσύνη are linked. And one of the tests, for the traditional confessional camp, to preserve the view that justification refers to God’s declaration that his people are righteous in his eyes, and that this is not some legal fiction but grounded on Christ’s substitutionary death, is imputation.” (Page 52)

“Even if we agree that there is no Pauline passage that explicitly says, in so many words, that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to his people, is there biblical evidence to substantiate the view that the substance of this thought is conveyed?” (Page 50)

“Paul rejects this tradition, not by making faith the instrument by which Christ’s righteousness is received, but by saying that God counted Abraham’s faith as righteousness even though it was not a work.” (Page 24)
