The latest issue of Tabletalk (Feb, 2010) devoted to answering the question: “What N.T. Wright Really Said” as it looks at the controversy surrounding N.T. Wright and the doctrine of justification.
Tabletalk is a devotional magazine of substance featuring a remarkable array of contributors. Ligonier Ministries and Tabletalk are to be congratulated for daring to take on such a difficult and controversial topic. Except for Modern Reformation, which has addressed the NPP many times, few magazines could muster the array and quality of contributors on an issue like this. If you’re new to this question or have been looking for a clear, brief explanation of what it’s all about, here it is.
Two Westminster Seminary California faculty members, Mike Horton and John Fesko, contributed to this issue. John looks the central issue “works of the law” in Paul. The NPP has sought to re-define and restrict the meaning of the phrase “works of the law” so that virtually no one is actually guilty of doing what Paul prohibits. Mike’s essay looks at the equally important question of justification and ecumenical relations. A good bit of mischief has been done in the name of “ecumenism” in the doctrine of justification.
One of the regular features of Tabletalk is column, For the Church, to which I contributed this month. The article is online now.
