Mark Traphagen has started reviewing Richard Gaffin’s latest publication, By Faith, Not by Sight: Paul and the Order of Salvation. This is one book that I look forward to getting my hands on. Unfortunately, what has been said concerning his critique of the NPP so far isn’t exactly encouraging — “Gaffin asserts that NPP advocates view justification almost entirely (or perhaps even just entirely) to be about ecclesiology rather than soteriology”. However, having screened that out, I am sure that Gaffin will have helpful things to say. I have greatly enjoyed all of the other books of his that I have read so far. Perhaps I will get a copy when I have finished Jakob Van Bruggen’s Paul: Pioneer for Israel’s Messiah.
