A must read for Christians on transgender issues

This book is incredibly helpful in mapping out the history, some biological/medical matters, and theological approaches to transgender questions. The introduction to the book, which frames and summaries this inta-Christian debate is worth the price alone. The authors representing the four positions are respectful towards one another, and present their positions well. The critiques offered by the interlocutors at the end of each chapter are fair, and avoid strawman arguments. I came away with a deeper recognition for the complexity of the issues related to transgenderism, both theologically (my field) and medically (not my field). Whatever one's position, this is not a matter to be quickly decided; careful thought is required. While I will leave it to the readers to decide for themselves which position they find most convincing, I will say that Strachan's position was probably weakened by his strong complementarian position, which tended to make him appear a bit tone deaf to the larger matters. This will make some of his possibly strong points less likely to be heard in the contemporary discussion. Overall, highly recommended book.… (mere)

“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). When Paul wrote these words he seemed confident he had made himself clear. But for centuries the Pauline doctrine of justification has been a classic point of interpretation and debate in Christian exegesis and theology. And while in recent decades there have been moments of hopeful convergence among the various traditions of the Western church, the fine print often reveals more facets and distinctions than ever before.

This volume focuses on five views of justification and calls on representative proponents to set forth their case and then respond to each other. The five views are:

Traditional Reformed (Michael S. Horton)
Progressive Reformed (Michael F. Bird)
New Perspective (James D. G. Dunn)
Deification, or Theosis (Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen)
Roman Catholic (Gerald O’Collins and Oliver Rafferty)
In addition, editors James Beilby, Paul R. Eddy, and Steven E. Enderlein provide an extensive introduction to the issues informing this important debate. This distinguished forum of biblical interpreters and theologians offers a lively and informative engagement with the biblical, historical and contemporary understandings of justification. Justification: Five Views is not only a fascinating probe into Paul’s meaning, it’s also a case book in theological method.

Logos Bible Software dramatically improves the value of Justification: Five Views by enabling you to find what you’re looking for with unparalleled speed and precision. The Logos edition is fully searchable and easily accessible.

Not a bad book. It presents four different models of the atonement (Christus Victor, Penal Substitution, Healing, Kaleidoscopic). It is thought provoking but ultimately the essays are flawed. Gregory Boyd argues passionately for Christus Victor, but from an Openess position. Joel Green argues for the Kaleidoscopic/multiple metaphors model but is antagonistic toward penal substitution. I think there could have been other authors who would better represent this respective positions.
