Justification and Theological Interpretation

Using Justification and the Gospel in the Classroom

Cover ArtAbout the Book: Seeking to move beyond current heated debates, Justification and the Gospel offers a fresh, alternative approach to a central theological topic.

Michael Allen locates the doctrine of justification within the wider context of the gospel, allowing for more thoughtful engagement with the Bible, historical theology, and the life of the church. Allen considers some of the liveliest recent debates as well as some overlooked connections within the wider orbit of Christian theology. He provides a historically informed, ecumenically minded defense of orthodox theology, and demonstrates justification’s relevance for ongoing issues of faith and practice.

“The new debate on justification is getting interesting! Allen provides a lucid scholarly guide to the controversies….How little the classic fault lines still apply! How much less can the matter of justification be regarded as passe.” – Paul R. Hinlicky, Roanoke College

“With a keen eye and deft hand Allen plunges into the ever-changing discussion of the biblical teaching on God’s justification of sinners, practicing a truly inter-subdisciplinary examination that draws upon exegetical, historical, and dogmatic studies….This volume will fire fresh exchanges regarding the nature of the gospel and the definition and application of God’s justifying action in Christ Jesus.” – Robert Kolb, Concordia Seminary
