“It is an alarming honor to be mentioned along Calvin and Edwards. i will not touch upon Huggins’s dialogue of these , yet i'm thankful for his transparent and cautious exposition of my very own suggestion on justification and its relevance to ongoing debates inside of diverse sections of the church, and specifically for his acceptance that what mattered to the Reformers, and may topic to us, is constancy to scripture.”

Jonathan Huggins solutions all of those questions within the affirmative, supplying us a compelling, hopeful review of the previous, the current, and the way forward for justification.”
