Item Description...
The Saving Righteousnes fo God presents a series of studies on contentious aspects of Paul's doctrine of justification including the meaning of 'righteousness', the question of imputation, the role of resurrection in justification, an evaluation of the New Perspective, the soteriological and ecclesiological significance of justification, justification by faith with judgment according to works, and debates over the orthodoxy of N.T. Wright. The burden of the volume is to demonstrate that both Reformed and 'new' readings of Paul are indispensable to attaining a full understanding of Paul's soteriology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Get a Birds-eye-view on the NP  May 23, 2007
Although he is a "historical Jesus specialist and Synoptic Gospels kind-a-guy," Michael Bird is also an insightful academic that has been well versed in reformed and revisionist readings of Paul; being such, in this monograph he is conversant with the aggressive questions that have both camps up in arms. Evenhandedly, the book embarks upon the fundamental issues and finds both parties lacking in areas and needing each other's help in their endeavor to better understand Paul. Naturally, the discussion surrounds itself around the gamut of righteousness language: imputed righteousness, the righteousness of God, Justification to the doers of the law, covenant membership, forensic justification, etc. Among these, I thought the developments and arguments made in chapter six, "Justification as Forensic Status or Covenant Membership," to be the most rewarding, which gives a tour de force of relevant intertestamental and first century common era literature in discussing Galatians and Romans. Additionally, this volume puts forward an alternative to imputation in a discussion of the helpful phrase "incorporated righteousness." Michael also gracefully challenges the skeptical and critical reader of NT Wright to take a good second look at the bishop and his views, hoping for them to come away less discordant as he shows them the profits to be made in Wright's scholarship. Furthermore and particularly noteworthy is that SROG gives nineteen of its pages to treating its readers to the developments made by Seifrid and Gaffin concerning the role of resurrection in salvation, calling attention to its vital function in justification.

While this book could be a difficult read for one unfamiliar with Paul's world and the NP, readers of Paul will lament if they pass this monograph over; it must be read if one is to continue to be reasonable in their exploration of the apostle to the gentiles and remain in balance with reformed and revisionist views concerning Paul's thought.
