'Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ' (Romans 5:1). When Paul wrote these words he seemed confident he made himself clear. But for centuries the Pauline doctrine of justification has been a classic point of debate in Christian exegesis and theology. And while in recent decades there have been moments of hopeful convergence among distinctions than ever before. Following a helpful introduction by the editors, this distinguished forum of biblical interpreters and theologians offer a lively and informative engagement with the biblical, historical and contemporary understanding of justification. The result is not only a fascinating probe into Paul's meaning but also a case book in theological method.
