The Preface to this 2007 book states, "The present work is a targeted response to Covenant, Justification, and Pastoral Ministry: Essays by the Faculty of Westminster Seminary California; CJPM". [This book] does not profess to be a comprehensive response... but it does profess to address the leading lines of argument in the Westminster symposium, arguments representative of more widespread criticism of positions the contributors of the present volume embrace. We have chosen to interact with this work not because other works of similar conviction are unworthy but because CJPM so boldly articulates its position. The contributors to this volume do not profess to represent a single school of thought. Some contributors, for example, are sympathetic to the NPP [New Perspective on Paul] or FV [Federal Vision] and some are not. Instead, the contributors are united in their concern that the views expressed in CJPM not become identified as THE Reformed... paradigm for relations between faith and good works." (Pg. xv-xvi)

One essayist suggests that CJPM "is misleading precisely because it misses the real heart of biblical Christianity by straining at some gnats and using categories that are strained by a very tight, and considerably debated, confessional position that is not PRECISELY biblical... What [CJPM] really does is lay out a case for correcting a number of perceived errors, mostly in other Reformed and evangelical theologies." (Pg. 30) He adds, "several other authors of [CJPM] ... should know that Reformed exegetes have openly raised these very same questions for several centuries now.

5 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Luke Nieuwsma on April 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
There is a lot of dust kicked up in the whole discussion/condemnation of the Federal Vision, and many of the claims made against this theological camp are quite off the mark. If you want to understand many of the positions that Federal Vision theologians actually hold, this is one of the best ways to go. The authors are responding to how they have been portrayed in "Covenant, Justification, and Pastoral Ministry" (a critique of the Federal Vision by Westminster Seminary in California).

This book contains excellent scholarship and solid exegesis. I don't necessarily agree with everything they've taught in it, but it's cleared the question in my mind of whether or not the Federal Vision pastors/theologians are heretics. They respond to the claims of "sneaking works into faith" by pointing out how faith, living and active, ALWAYS produces works. They show clearly how they have never taught salvation by works, and how the theologians of Westminster West have painted a small portion of the theological canvas bright blue and then claimed that everyone else is "not Reformed," when historically the Reformed heritage is far broader than that blue patch, as azure as it may be.

All that and I'm only half-way through! More once I'm finished. If you're interested in this controversy, get the book!
