'Right with God' is a study of what the Bible has to say about justification, along with reflections as to how this teaching ought to work out in a variety of contexts, around the world.
In addition to the essays on particular parts of the Bible (Paul, Matthew, Luke, Acts, John, James), the book includes an essay assessing recent thought on justification, and another attempting to put together a synthesis of biblical perspectives on this important theme. One chapter relates justification and personal Christian living; another weighs the relationship between justification and social justice; yet another evaluates the treatment of justification in Roman Catholicism and in various interfaith dialogues. For some readers, however, the most innovative chapters will be those discussing the relevance of the Christian doctrine of justification by faith in Hindu, Islamic, and Buddhist contexts. The contributors have been drawn from evangelical communities around the world.
