This article explains that preaching needs to be Word-centred, rather than focused on the preacher. It provides three considerations for building a Word-centred church.
This article is about justification, how lost sinners share in the saving righteousness of God in Christ. Schreiner is in dialogue with N. T. Wright. First, Schreiner is convinced that Wright wrongly says that justification is primarily about ecclesiology instead of soteriology. Next, Schreiner believes that Wright often introduces a false polarity when referring to the mission of Israel.
In this article Schreiner responds to an article of Brian Abasciano who made critical remarks on Schreiner's handling of Romans 9. Schreiner argues that Abasciano’s argument is flawed. His grounds are that the connection Abasciano draws between corporate election and participation of individuals is unpersuasive both logically and biblically.
Appeal is often made to Romans 9 to explain and defend the doctrine of election. The traditional Reformed exegesis of Romans 9, however, is increasingly questioned today. Schreiner first wants to explain two of the objections to this exegesis, and then examines whether the objections are persuasive.
In this chapter Schreiner introduces the apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans. Different aspects are explored: the significance of the letter, authorship, date, its unity, the text and its integrity, its destination and purpose, and finally its literary structure.
This article looks at the life of Paul as the apostle to the Gentiles. The article explains his work, which includes the three missionary journeys he undertook in his calling. It also reflects on his crucial understanding of the promise of God to Abraham that pointed to the blessing of all nations. It was an understanding that drove him in his missionary journeys, along with much suffering for the gospel.
