In this significant book Mark C. Mattes critically evaluates the role of justification in the theologies of five leading Protestant thinkers—Eberhard Jungel, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Jurgen Moltmann, Robert W. Jenson, and Oswald Bayer—pointing out their respective strengths and weaknesses and showing how each matches up with Luther's own views. Offering both an excellent review of recent trends in Christian theology and a powerful analysis of these trends, Mattes points readers to the various ways in which the doctrine of justification has been applied today.
This book is about faithful witnesses—from the Reformation to South African apartheid to Bonhoeffer—to the promise of Jesus Christ.

In this penetrating reflection on the meaning of "justification," Oswald Bayer shows how this key religious term provides a comprehensive horizon for discussing every aspect of Christian theology, from creation to the end times.

The devil has fallen on hard times. Surveys say that even the majority of Christians doubt his existence. And burdened by doubts skeptical believers find themselves divorced from Jesus' dramatic confrontation with Satan in the Gospels and the struggle that galvanized the witness of the early church. Reviving Old Scratch reintroduces the devil to the modern church with a biblical, bold and urgent vision of spiritual warfare where we resist the devil by joining the Kingdom of God's subversive campaign to interrupt the world with love.
