Justification for Today's Christian  May 28, 2010
The great reformers all agreed that the act of justification is God's alone, that we can do nothing to achieve or earn God's favor. Justification is one of the theological tenets that unite all historic Reformation denominations and their offshoots. In this book, the editors bring together leading international Reformed scholars to help us understand both the relevance of justification for today's Christian and how it impacts our social and evangelical concerns.

The scholars whose chapters comprise this collection include John Webster (Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen, Scotland), Dirkie Smit (Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa), Katherine Sonderegger (Professor of Theology, Virginia Theological Seminary, Richmond), Laura Smit (Associate Professor of theology Calvin College, Michigan), Martien E Brinkman (Professor of Ecumenical Studies at the Free University of Amsterdam), George Hunsinger (professor of Systematic Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary) and Sandor Fazakas (Professor for Social Ethics, Reformed Theological University, Debrecen, Hungary), Heindrik M. Vroom (philosophy of Religion, Free University of Amsterdam), Christiaan Mostert (Professor of Systematic Theology, Uniting Church Theological College, Melbourne, Australia), as well as each of the editors.

For the purpose of brevity in this review, let me commend editor John Burgess in his chapter entitled "Justification and Sanctification: Implications for Church Life Today". Burgess speaks of justification from the perspective of John Calvin, who likened it not to a looking at Christ but rather to putting on Christ. This appropriation of the saving grace of Jesus allows the Christian the unity with Christ that Jesus himself prays for in the Maundy Thursday discourses of John's gospel. This union with Christ, says Burgess, is not only the blessing given to the Christian believer but also the desire of God for all people. Burgess reminds us that this relationship is covenantal--we are bound to Christ and to each other through the promise given and accepted in Jesus' sacrificial love. Burgess stresses that we are to be "covenantal partners" with God in bringing about God's work, empowered to witness and to serve. Justification happens but once for each believer; yet, as Burgess says "we constantly appropriate it anew" (page 66). This brings about in us what he calls "the grace to do good" prompting the Christian to act on Christ's behest and behalf in the world. Guides for our practice of the faith are scriptural, and include the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount and especially the words and works of Jesus and his first followers.

The entire book is like unto this one, scholarly in tone, fresh in appeal, with a clarity that the reader will find accessible. Editor John Burgess is the James Henry Snowdon Professor of Systematic Theology at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He has taught at PTS since 1998; before that he was on the staff of the Office of Theology and Worship of the General Assembly of the PC(USA). John has traveled and written about the church in Russia and is an expert on the rebirth of the Christian church there following the seventy-five years of communism. Editor Michael Weinrich is Professor of Systematic Theology: Ecumenics and Dogmatics in the Protestant Theological Faculty of the Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany.
