Gospel Clarity: Challenging the New Perspective on PaulISBN: 9780852347331
We pray that in the pages of this book God's people may again hear the gospel message, the good news that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. We are convinced that the most important question that a person can ask is, how can a sinner be in right relationship with a holy and just God? Indeed, we are convinced that this is the central theme of the Bible. Our prayer is that the teaching of God's Word and the truth of salvation and justification in Christ come alive in new and exciting ways, and that instead of confusion God's people may be have clarity, confidence, hope and assurance. The apostle Paul said it best: "Since we have been justified by faith...we rejoice in hope of the glory of God" (Romans 5:1-2).

Bill Barcley and Ligon Duncan combine biblical scholarship and pastoral skill in addressing one of the crucial issues of our time - the doctrine of justification. With enviable clarity and precision, this book adds to growing number of titles addressing the "new perspective(s) on Paul." At stake is the understanding of the gospel itself. This is the finest summary available of the core issues and a welcome confirmation of the "old" perspective. Gospel-driven churches should make this book a special study. --Derek W. H. Thomas
