During the Reformation, the doctrine of
justification was considered a distinguishing factor in
the division between Protestant and Catholic theology. In
his book The Doctrine of Justification, Pink makes note of this
and proceeds to present a Protestant doctrine of justification--its
meaning, basis, nature, sources, evidence. What is justification? What
is it not? How can we harmonize the idea of justification with other
religious truths? Pink defines justification as God's declaration of
forgiveness and acceptance through which our souls are moved from a
state of sin and guilt to a state of righteousness through Christ. Pink
emphasizes the fact that this change in our souls is not subjective; it
is a change in the sinner's legal status in the eyes of heaven. In the
event of justification, we are confronted with God's goodness, justice,
and wisdom. We are delivered from death through Christ, and by
justification, God calls us his own. Justification is a topic that is
relevant to all Christians, and this book successfully dispels some of
the confusion surrounding the term.
