About-

Martin Luther invented the Reformation slogan sola fide--by faith alone--which Philipp Melanchthon and John Calvin brandished and defended. Most Protestants since their time have swallowed it whole. But is evangelical obedience--the good works that follow faith and are produced by grace--excluded from the basis for justification or otherwise? Asserting that "there is no more serious question bearing upon the destiny of human beings than how sinners can be justified before a Holy God," Paul Rainbow examines current and traditional treatments of faith, works, and justification, marshals a biblical case majoring on the New Testament teaching of Paul and James, and offers a series of systematic, historical, and pastoral reflections.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A fresh and stimulating approach which must be taken seriously by theologians on both sides of this classic debate."
--Gerald Bray, Anglican Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

"A remarkable book indeed! A long overdue, yet comprehensive recognition of Paul's teaching about the obedience of faith and the relation of good deeds to the full justification of the Christian who is saved. I recommend it highly to all who are interested in Pauline theology."
--Joseph Fitzmyer, SJ, Professor Emeritus, Biblical Studies, Catholic University of America
