Justification (Short Studies in Systematic Theology)
A Clear and Concise Exploration of the Doctrine of Justification from Thomas R. Schreiner
When we see the fallenness of the world, it is often challenging to understand how sinners can stand before a holy God, but the gospel gives hopeâ€”justification that comes through Jesus Christ. This doctrine is essential to the gospel but has sparked countless academic and theological disagreements throughout church history, even contributing to the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century.Â
In this addition to the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Thomas R. Schreiner examines the biblical and historical background of the doctrine of justification. Schreiner explores it throughout church history and analyzes both the Old and New Testament teachings. By examining the relationship between justification and other doctrines of salvationâ€”such as redemption, reconciliation, adoption, and sanctificationâ€”Schreiner shows how it gives peace, assurance, and joy to sinners through Jesus and hope for life today.
