“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.
