Panel on NT Wright and the Doctrine of Justification

Yesterday at my almost alma mater Southern Seminary (I did half of my seminary training there), they recently held a forum discussing the theology of NT Wright. The panel was moderated by Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. and included two of my former professors Dr. Tom Schreiner and Dr. Mark Seifrid, along with two guys who were teaching assistant working on their Ph. D.'s who are now professors, Dr. Brian Vickers and Dr. Denny Burk.

N.T. Wright and his doctrine of Justification is associated with the recent controversial teaching known as the New Perspective on Paul. Wright is a prolific writer and some of his books on justification have included What Saint Paul Really Said, Paul: Fresh Perspectives, and his most recent publication Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision. In this latest work, Wright responds to conservative Evangelical scholars who have disagreed with him, especially John Piper's work The Future of Justification.

  1. Check out this comment about the panel from Mike Gorman:

    Gorman has some helpful works on Paul, but I haven't looked as his recent one on justification. Nevertheless, I find it helpful to see someone outside of these circles reflect on not just the theology but the approach to the issues in a forum like this.
