really liked it

This book is worth the 4 stars for 2 reasons: it clearly states his position on Pauline Justification and his winsome rhetorical skills. Those who say that Wright is confusing in this book cannot have entered into Wright's world, and those who think he comes across as crass have either not read much scholarly works, and/or not be familiar with Wright (listen to his last lecture at the 2010 Wheaton Theology Conference and keep in mind that Piper blasted him only a few days before). His chapter on Galatians presents a much clearer understanding of the book as a whole than most attempts. The major fault of this book seems to be his understanding of some of the reformers, and Luther in particular, although it seems that the majority of Lutherans have for the last 200 years as well. This book serves as a good intro into NPP thought.
