The Doctrine of Justification: Its Reformation Formulation and Present Challenges
This course explores the classical Reformation formulation of justification in both its sixteenth-century and contemporary contexts. There is an emphasis on some recent theological movements which have challenged the traditional understanding of the doctrine, such as: the New Perspective on Paul, Gerhard Forde’s Radical Lutheranism, The Finnish approach to Luther interpretation, twentieth-century ecumenical dialogues, and Radical Orthodoxy. Throughout, the explanation offered on the doctrine by the heirs of the Reformation is defended as consistent both with Paul’s thought and with the early church.
