The debates over justification-a helpful overview of the issues

DA Carson provides a useful overview of the issues in the justification debates. Click here. This article is twelve years old, but contemporary enough to be a guide for those working through the New Perspectives on Paul school of thought. Some will see this as useless nitpicking and be satisfied with a mere “Jesus saves” motto. But that will not do. See my post on GK Chesterton and the necessity of theological nitpicking to keep our faith from tipping over into immense errors. Christianity keeps in tension a whole host of truths, any one of which left to itself can work a terrible harm when not taught in conjunction with other necessary truths.
