Vor einigen Wochen habe ich das Buch:
- Charles Lee Irons: The Righteousness of God: A Lexical Examination of the Covenant-Faithfulness Interpretation, WUN T II, 386, Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2015, ISBN: 978-3-16-153518-5, 444 S., 89,00 €
besprochen (PDF-Datei hier: Irons.pdf).
Heute ist eine Rezension von Prof. Thomas Schreiner veröffentlicht worden. Fazit:
To sum up, the gauntlet has been thrown down. Those who defend the covenant-faithfulness view of God’s righteousness must reckon with and refute Irons. He has demonstrated that the gift character of God’s righteousness is the view of most interpreters throughout church history. He has also demonstrated, with remarkable care and wonderful clarity, that such is the meaning in Paul’s writing as well. When finishing a dissertation like this, I couldn’t help but think, this should’ve been written a long time ago. But it hasn’t been tackled until now.
The notion that God’s righteousness is a gift given to us in Christ, and that our righteousness is an imputed righteousness, has been powerfully defended in this outstanding work.
