Wright Writes Back

H/T Tim Robertson:

N.T. Wright has written a re-articulation of his view of justification and a response to his critics (notably Piper's The Future of Justification). Entitled Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision (192 pages) it will be published in the UK by SPCK (February 2009) and in the US by IVP (July 2009).
"This sprightly and gracious, yet robust, work is Tom Wright's carefully argued and scripturally based response to those who think that he has deeply misunderstood Paul's doctrine of justification... This is definitely one of the most exciting and significant books that I have read this year... Strongly commended! Professor I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen

'Paul's gospel of God's reconciling, world-transforming grace has no more ardent and eloquent exponent in our time than Tom Wright. If his detractors read this book carefully, they will find themselves engaged in close exegesis of Paul's letters, and they will be challenged to join Wright in grappling with the deepest logic of Paul's message... Wright's sweeping, incisive sketch of Paul's thought, set forward in this book, will help us all in that task.' Professor Richard B. Hays, the Divinity School, Duke University"
