Many ask what notable scholars generally support my interpretation of the text. I have a list on my Statement of Faith page of non-Calvinistic scholars, but they vary in how they approach certain aspects of the text (as do all the soteriological camps). Today we take a look at the work of NT Wright and Herschel Hobbs, two well respected theologians. Let's dive in!

To join our discussion go to www.soteriology101.com

For more on Dr. Hobbs, see: http://www.sbts.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2010/07/sbjt_071_spr03_dockery.pdf

 

NT Wright's work has been praised by many scholars of varying views, including James D.G. DunnGordon FeeRichard B. Hays and Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury. Critics of his work are also found across the broad range of theological camps. Some Reformed theologians such as John Piper have sought to question Wright's theology, particularly over whether or not he denies the Protestant doctrine of justification by faith alone. Although Piper considers Wright's presentation confusing, he does not dismiss Wright's view as false. In response, Wright has stated he wishes Piper would "exegete Paul differently" and that his book "isn't always a critique of what I'm actually saying." Wright also expressed how he has warmed to Piper and considers him a "good, beloved brother in Christ, doing a good job, building people up in the faith, teaching them how to live."[15] In 2009, Wright has since addressed the issue in his book Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 2009). He has sought to clarify his position further in an interview with InterVarsity Press.[15] Many conservative evangelicals have also questioned whether Wright denies penal substitution, but Wright has stated that he denies only its caricature but affirms this doctrine, especially within the overall framework of the Christus Victor model of atonement.[16] Despite criticism of some of his work by Reformed theologians, other Reformed leaders have embraced his contribution in other areas, such as Tim Keller who praised Wright's work on the resurrection.[17] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N._T._Wright)
