More Engagement with Campbell on “Justification”

May 11, 2012

Running a little behind in tracking journals, I’ve only recently noted that a recent issue of Journal for the Study of the New Testament (vol. 34, 2011) is devoted to a robust debate over Douglas Campbell’s book, The Deliverance of God (which Campbell also discussed with me in response to an earlier posting on this blog site).   Here are the contributions to that issue, which will now comprise a substantial engagement with Campbell’s big book:

  • R. Barry Matlock, “Zeal for Paul but Not According to Knowledge:  Douglas Campbell’s War on ‘Justification Theory’,” pp. 115-49.
  • Grant Macaskill, “Review Essay:  Douglas Campbell, The Deliverance of God,” pp. 150-61.
  • Douglas Campbell, “An Attempt to be Understood: A Response to the Concerns of Matlock and Macaskill with The Deliverance of God,” pp. 162-208.  (As should be apparent from various examples, Campbell seems to require a lot of space to make his views clear!)

    Given your comments Barry, I’ll have to read your article 🙂 – sorry we just missed one another at Tyndale House, Cambridge when you and Peter Head had a meeting… will be nice to talk 1 Cor 7 one day…

      Hope you enjoy the article! Btw, I must have a double out there somewhere, because I wasn’t at Tyndale House or meeting with Peter.

    There’s an old joke that goes something like: ‘How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips move.’ Campbell has a similar method for discerning when his critics misunderstand him: it’s when they disagree with him. 🙂
