On 31 October, 1999, exactly four hundred and eighty-two years after Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the church door in Wittenberg, the Roman Catholic Church and the Worldwide Lutheran Federation signed a historic joint declaration on the doctrine of justification. Recent agreements between Lutheran, Reformed, and Episcopalian churches have also expressed a shared commitment the doctrine of God's grace in Christ. But what does it mean for churches today?

Persuaded that the doctrine of justification is also gospel — the good news of life in Christ — the contributors to The Gospel of Justification in Christ engage broadly with this crucial doctrine, addressing such topics as the unity of the Church, justification's relation to social justice, and its significance for interfaith dialogue.
