Justification: Volume 1, by Michael Horton, Michael Allen, and Scott R. Swain, Paperback

$39.99 $31.99

SKU: 3719598

The doctrine of justification is central to our systematic reading of Scripture, as well as the meaning of salvation, piety, mission, and life together. In this two-volume work on the doctrine of justification, Michael Horton hopes to not just repeat noble doctrinal formulas and traditional proof texts, but to encounter the remarkable biblical justification texts in conversation with the provocative proposals that, despite a wide range of differences, have sparked the contemporary debates around justification.
Volume 1 is descriptive in nature. Explore the doctrine of justification from the patrisitic era to the Reformation. Horton seeks to broaden the scope as he explores patristic discussions of justification under the rubric of the great exchange. He includes a map for contemporary discussions of justification, identifying and engaging his principle interlocutors: Origen, Chrysostom, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus, William of Ockham, Gabriel Biel, and the magisterial reformers.
Observing the assimilation of justification to the doctrine of penance in medieval theology, especially via Peter Lombard, the work studies the transformations of the doctrine through Aquinas, Scotus and the nominalists leading up to the era of the Reformation and the Council of Trent. He concludes his first study by examining the hermeneutical and theological significance of the Reformers’ understanding of the law and the gospel and the resultant covenantal scheme that became formative in Reformed theology.
Volume 2 will investigate the biblical doctrine of justification in light of contemporary exegesis.
