N. T. Wright, a world-renowned New Testament scholar and bishop of Durham in the Church of England, has spent years studying the apostle Paul's writings and has offered a fresh perspective on Paul's theology. Among his conclusions are that the discussions of justification in much of the history of the church - certainly since Augustine - got off on the wrong foot, at least in terms of understanding Paul - and they have stayed there ever since.

Wright's confidence that the church has gotten it wrong for 1,500 years, given his enormous influence, has set off warning bells for Christian leaders such as John Piper, a pastor and New Testament scholar. If Wright's framework for interpreting the New Testament text and his understanding of justification find a home in the church, not only could the doctrine of justification be distorted for generations to come, but the New Testament writers' original intent could be silenced. So Piper is sounding a crucial warning in this audiobook, reminding all Christians to exercise great caution regarding fresh interpretations of the Bible and to hold fast to the biblical view of justification.

    " A very intricate sandcastle. "

    " A great and balanced explanation of and response to NT Wright's views on Paul and justification. Piper explains which charges against Wright are valid and which are not, which errors he falls into and which he does not, and which Wright's views may lead into even though Wright himself doesn't go there. It definitely helps me understand why there are such mixed views of Wright in evangelicalism. As his response, Piper provides an excellent defense of penal substitutionary atonement. "

    " I have read and been deeply impacted by many John Piper books. I was disappointed, because I found in this book that he seems to be arguing a strongly polemical position from a place of passion about preserving traditions. This is ironic, given that the traditions he's arguing to preserve are the traditions of the reformers who argued that we should scrutinize traditional teachings carefully in light of the Bible. Piper argues less from the Bible than from the tradition. My second disappointment was that this book is written as a response to N. T. Wright; however, it seemed to me like Piper was arguing against a straw man. Either he hasn't read Wright very carefully, or he genuinely is unable to understand Wright's arguments; I'm guessing it's the former, because Piper is very intelligent and articulate. "
