By Brian Vickers
The query of even if Paul teaches that Christ's righteousness is imputed to the believer has been debated for about 400 years. a few of the questions that come up are: what's the connection among Adam and the remainder of the human race? How did Christ satisfy the position of the second one or new Adam? How can the "ungodly" stand sooner than a righteous God?
In Jesus' Blood and Righteousness, Brian Vickers investigates the main Pauline texts associated traditionally to the subject of imputation. although Vickers spends a great deal of time at the details of every textual content, he retains one eye at the broader biblical horizon; like every doctrine, imputation needs to be investigated exegetically and synthetically. This publication, and its end that the imputation of Christ's righteousness is a sound and beneficial synthesis of Paul's educating, is a invaluable contribution to the continued debate on imputation.
