    I think Wright’s thinking on this is more accurate in the sense of being closer to what Paul meant in the 1st century.

    They both can’t be right because they disagree on some important issues. What is up with David Swanson? Piper was entirely cordial and humble in dealing with Wright.

    “David Swanson says Piper and
    his supporters have come across as “less generous and humble than
    I’d hope. On an emotional level, this makes Wright’s view more
    intriguing. But I’ve tried not to dismiss the traditional Reformed
    view of justification out of hand because of the rhetoric.””
