By Faith, Not by Sight: Paul and the Order of Salvation
1 in stock
Proponents of the 'New Perspective' on Paul generally reject or minimise the concept of an ordo salutis ('order of salvation') in his writings. Building on the biblical-theological groundwork of the Reformed tradition, Richard B. Gaffin Jr. explores Paul's understanding of how individuals receive salvation.
Even Peter acknowledged that Paul wrote some things that are hard to understand, yet the central elements of Paul's teaching are clearly explained by Gaffin as he unfolds Paul's focus on Christ's death and resurrection and the essence of his ordo salutis.
"This is a very good book - one of the best books on soteriology I've read... masterfully shows the centrality of union with Christ in his death and resurrection and the eschatological impact of those key gospel events on the believer's salvation."
