Description: Is salvation a gift of God's grace or something Godís followers must earn by good works? How do we reconcile the two emphases that salvation is a bestowal of Godís mercy and that the final judgment will involve an assessment of the way people have lived during their time on earth? Judgment and Justification offers an incisive new look at the Jewish context for our understanding of Paul's teaching. Scholars on all sides of the ongoing debate will benefit by interacting with the texts presented and the provocative arguments the author draws from them.
