Review

Simon Gathercole-- University of Cambridge Reading Stephen Westerholm's sketch of justification in Paul is a duty and a joy. This volume introduces the subject clearly and elegantly to students. But it also throws down the gauntlet to the New Perspectivists. How will they respond? John M. G. Barclay-- Durham University Every student wrestling with justification' will be grateful for this highly engaging book. Westerholm nimbly develops the mainstream interpretation, while critiquing popular current alternatives (including those by Campbell and Wright). Here is ready ammunition for an important continuing debate. R. Barry Matlock-- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Anything Stephen Westerholm writes on justification by faith' is not just worth reading; it is essential reading. If you have been led to believe that Paul is only concerned with a Gentile problem, not a human problem; that justification' means belonging to the covenant'; that works of law' refers simply to boundary markers'; that justification theory' must be eliminated from Paul; then you have not been fully informed. And if being well informed on such things matters to you, then read this book. Douglas J. Moo-- Wheaton College Justification Reconsidered is a valuable summary and extension of Stephen Westerholm's fresh and compelling arguments about Paul and Judaism in his Perspectives Old and New on Paul. This book engages with key biblical and theological issues in current interpretation of Paul and is marked by a refreshingly clear and forthright style.

"Theology Today" Oldness does not necessarily mean obsolescence. A reading of "Justification Reconsidered" confirms that and gives the reader a succinct introduction to the issues involved when Pauline revisionists maintain otherwise.

"Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society" What I love most about Stephen Westerholm is his ability to articulate and celebrate the freshness of the old perspective on Paul. . . . I cannot more highly recommend Westerholm's new book to anyone who has an interest in Paul. . . . A must read for all seekers of Paul. It is short. It is to the point. It interacts with some key Pauline scholars. . . . Most importantly, it confidently and clearly shows that a traditional reading of Paul, although it may need a tune-up, is in no way in need of a complete overhaul. "Reviews in Religion" A wonderfully written analysis of the key issues in the debate. . . . Could work well as an introduction to justification in Paul for an undergraduate course, or for students at whatever level seeking a summary of recent writings on this theme. It would also be a stimulating read for those enamored with new perspectives' on Paul, encouraging them to look again at a traditional approach' to Paul's justification language. In my view, they could hardly find a better guide than Westerholm. "Lutheran Quarterly" It can be recommended as a primer for the general reader on current debates, and it should be considered as a serious challenge to academic interpreters. "Reformation 21" (blog) Read this short, engaging book. An evangelical reader will get up to speed on various critical views of Paul concerning justification and enjoy a heart-warming defense of the glorious Gospel. "Theology Today" Oldness does not necessarily mean obsolescence.

"Review of Biblical Literature" Concise and lucid. . . .
