Paul's doctrine of »justification« is heavily debated among scholars. One basic question is this: What does it mean for God to »justify«? In this work, James B. Prothro explores biblical legal controversies and scenes of divine judgment in order to answer this question. He shows what it means for Paul to say that God the judge is the justifier of those who trust in Christ.
