This book edited by Horton is definitely a must-read for those who want to explore into this debate. I've been blessed by some articles in modern Reformation (the magazine that Horton edits) which has made me seen the debate in a new light. The magazine articles and this book has also made me changed my thinking from a pro-Lordship, MacArthur/Walter Chantry style, to a more balanced but yet confused (!!) person.
Two complains about this book. Firstly, I think Horton is quite unfair towards Hodges. Though Horton remains one of my favourite authors, I didn't really like the treatment of Hodges in this book.
Secondly, because of the varied nature of the book and the different views of the different authors, there was a lack in unity overall.
But the book is refreshing in that it approaches the subject from a historical view - from the Reformation.
I liked Horton's criticism of MacArthur's teachings - not because i like to see criticism, but because i thought through the criticisms the issues were made clearer. I'm not sure MacArthur has changed totally because of this book, though I know he has changed his views a bit.
Rick Ritche's chapter on "The Law According to Jesus" was enlightening and it provided a very lutheran view on the law-gospel. This view contradicted many a pro-Lordship's view on the "Rich Young Ruler" passage - a passage that many pro-Lordship advocates use to defend their view.
Horton's "Christ Crucified between Two thieves" provided a insightful look into these same issues which occured in Church history.
Riddlebarger's "What is Faith?" chapter is good in that it clarified what faith is - not repentance, but knowledge, assent and trust alone!
And Rosenbladt's chapter on "Christ died for the sins of Christians, too" gave a good Lutheran end to this issue - the importance of realising that Christ's death and His benefits are always there for the Christian.
Once again, a must reading for those into this debate.
