I found this book helpful as I seek to understand this issue The NT obviously talks about the importance of our obedience in relation to the final judgment but so often I hear that practically denied from pulpits I enjoy the format where each responds to the others perspectives It helps to understand the potential flaws in their arguments or interpretation

This book examines four views Wilkin argues that works affect only rewards and in no way interact with our final justification by God Schriener argues that our works confirm our justification at the final judgment Dunn speaking for the New Perspective on Paul argues that the New Testament teaches final justification by both faith and works without the possibility of separating the two and Barber a Roman Catholic theologian argues that the believer s union with Christ graciously renders his works meritorious for final judgmentWilkin s position is a nonsensical mishmash of begging the uestion and selection of evidence He puts himself most clearly here Many would agree that there is a necessary connection between believing in Jesus and obeying his commandments I would not He can therefore safely be dismissed on the evidence of scripture Schreiner elucidates mainly from Paul but also other texts the interpretation that I am most inclined toward that works are necessary for justification but they are not the basis of justification or salvation since God reuires perfection and all human beings sin Hence works constitute the necessary evidence of fruit of one s new life in Christ Dunn s arguments are interesting but essentially he pushes a non integrated view of faith and works Can we actually reconcile justification by faith and not by works with justification according to works Assuredly we can maintain that any good that the believer does derives entirely from God s grace But can we also deny that for Paul believers do and will bear responsibility before God for their doings Is it so serious that we cannot fit the two neatly into a single coherent proposition He argues well but I do not see the force of his objections that Schreiner s position weakens the text by not giving emphasis to the warnings Barber a Protestant trained Catholic argues for the modern Catholic view from Eph 320 and Matt 19 among other similar verses that the grace of God in the union of Christ to the believer is powerful enough to make our works meritorious The works that the believer performs in union with Christ are therefore capable of doing far than all we ask or think they even have salvific value His arguments are creative but textually unconvincing Of special note unfortunately is the general editor Alan Stanley whose closing essay in contrast with those by Pate in 4V Revelation or by Grudem in 4V Miraculous Gifts is boring and unhelpful Overall an interesting and useful volume
