I just came across Matthew Barrett’s review at TGC of Justification: Five Views.
It’s a good review, covering the book well, focusing mainly on the Protestant vs. Catholic issues. Barrett comes down on the side of Horton in the end (I like Horton, but I’m rubbing my face with my hands in frustration).
Ultimately, however, [i.e., despite the critique of my take on imputation] Bird stands within the Protestant tradition in his affirmation of justification as a forensic declaration of one’s new status, and not one’s moral state. And he affirms that we are incorporated into the righteousness of Christ so that his obedience is counted as ours. Out of all the chapters Bird’s seeks to tackle the text the most, something for which he should be applauded.
I may need to quote this at a heresy trial one day.
