One thought on “The Justification of God: An Exegetical and Theological Study of Romans 9:1-23

  1. Mike Reynolds

    Straightforward, thorough, clear, and water tight This goes straight for the heart of the issue by arguing for the righteousness of God that is found in his allegiance to his own name and glory Piper successfully argues for the freedom of God to elect according to his own will and his desire to exalt his name I will revisit this regularly as I sharpen my greek over time in hopes to get even out of it It answers the objections of national election, historical election instead of eternal destinie [...]

  2. Steve Rohn

    On my top 10 Great exegetically while maintaining clarity Sadly just about everyone else gets Romans 9 wrong except Calvin and Pink and misses the plain as can be teaching of equal ultimacy So I highly appreciate that Piper sticks up for that Also, he lays down individual predestination vs national selection, and salvation vs national destiny very well, which every Calvinist cherishes His comments on the first part of Romans 3 are great I had to read that section a few times before I got his flo [...]

  3. David Westerfield

    In a day when men in the pulpit and in the study would take the verses of Romans nine totally out of context, infer unwarranted and unscriptural presuppositions foreknown faith as the basis for election , thus pressing ideologies onto the text that are just not there, John Piper s scholarly work on what Romans nine is all about is a great defense of Biblical election unconditional election that shines a light in the darkness of so much poor analysis and exegesis of this chapter Romans nine is ab [...]

  4. Jacob O'connor

    I ve made quite a journey I started my life in the faith as an Arminianist At times I ve beenoffendedattractedafraidpersuadedby Calvinism These days I attend a Calvinist church I respect my pastor and fellow congregants, but I have some lingering reservations with reformed theology Enter John Piper He s among the most popular, plain, and appealing proponents of this perspective In Justification of God, Piper tackles the crucial Calvinist passage, Romans chapter 9 This can be troublesome reading [...]

  5. J. Machen

    What does it mean for God to be righteous In his profound study of Paul s justification of God s election in Romans 9, John Piper examines what exactly Paul is trying to argue in Romans 9 and looks at the resulting conception of God s righteousness that Paul appears to have held This book is a profound and penetrating example of exegetical study and a must read for studies on election, God s righteousness, or chapter 9 of Romans Piper works through the different exegetical issues provided in the [...]

  6. Matt Rigney

    I m refraining from giving this book a rating simply because I miss a lot of the nuanced arguments that Piper makes from the original Hebrew and Greek I will say that I thought it was a great book, but a difficult read Very academic in nature, but theologically rich Piper s main thesis, and one that I find compelling, is that in Romans 9, Paul is saying thatGod seeks above all things to uphold the honor and glory of his name From passages in Exodus especially Ex 33 19 , he argues that the glory [...]

  7. Jacob McGill

    I have changed so much, and learned so much since reading this book that it would be unfair to rate this book now I am able to say that Piper does some funny work with the glory of God and extracts Romans 9 11 out from the rest of Romans so typical in much work written on Romans in recent history He reads election as merely individualistic, ripped out of the covenental context that God established with Israel, and is so important for understanding Romans see Rom 1 17 3 21 23 But I would really n [...]

  8. William Dicks

    This is probably John Piper s most important book he has written The Justification of God is certainly not light hearted reading, and is not meant for someone who does not want to think about the issue of the predestination of the elect However, for those who are willing to think deeply while they read, this will be a very rewarding book.Through solid exegetical skills, Piper shows that predestination and election, as written about by Paul in Romans 9, is of the individual Christian and not corp [...]

  9. L. R. Bouligny Bouligny

    A very helpful treatment of this controversial chapter Piper does a thorough job of taking this chapter apart I do think he spends too much time building arguments from some of the OT passages, and those chapters of his book become tedious, as he overstates his case However, he does make a conclusive case not an easy read, and unless you have some experience with the original languages, you will get lost very quickly

  10. Glyn Williams

    This is certainly not bedtime reading, nor is it for the average Joe This is a deep exegesis of Romans 9 with references to the original Greek, giving thorough explanation of the words and text.In typical Piper manner the books is sometimes a little confusing and not so easy to follow, but when you read it slower and analytically, that tends to disappear and you will gain far from it.

  11. Jonathan B

    The best treatment of Romans 9 I ve ever read or heard Absolutely definitive Throughout the study, Piper thoroughly dismantles the common objections about national destinies rather than personal, whether fitted is passive voice, whether the potter analogy comes from Jeremiah, etc This is a difficult read due to its technicality, but absolutely essential reading for anyone interested in the Calvinism debate.

  12. Autumn

    this book would have been so much easier if I could read Greek, but other than that, a through study on why God does what He does in salvation and displaying His mercy and judgement using Romans 9 this is not a book on the doctrine of election, but rather a discussion on the righteousness of God in dealing with His people.

  13. Josh

    Very interesting to read the study that convinced Piper of Christian hedonism and to become a pastor An excellent argument for double predestination in Romans 9 However, it s very academic and scholarly, with lots of iteration with other scholars and original languages I don t recommend it unless you re really into Piper, the question of double predestination, or Bible scholarship.

  14. Laurent Dv

    Excellent exegesis of Romans 9 which expose clearly and precisely the real thought of Paul on the righteoussness of God, his ultimate goal, the unconditionnal election The depth and the most message of Romans 9 1 23 had been missed by many commentators, but Piper filled the gap with his great work.

  15. Brian Nicks

    This was probably the most analytical book I have read since graduating from seminary This is not a book for the faint of heart You must have a working knowledge of Biblical Hebrew and Greek in order to get the most out of this book and interact with Piper s basic thesis If you pick this book up, you will be richly rewarded for your effort.

  16. Josh Shelton

    This book was a huge paradigm shift for the way in which I see and understand God s Righteousness This was totally taken up into the theology of Edwards in The End For Which God Created The World.

  17. Cray Allred

    Very thankful to have read this Probably my favorite Piper book Get this if you want an understanding of all sides of the predestinarian debate, and a convincing affirmation hinged on thorough, OT NT, exegesis.

  18. Elizabeth

    UGH Why is it taking me so long to read this book I have read four other books in the same time span.

  19. Eric Molicki

    Indispensable when studying Romans 9 Also excellent for wrestling with the reality of God s sovereignty AND human responsibility Not light reading though

  20. Eli

    Probably the best book ever written on the exegesis of Romans 9 A must read for every serious student of theology.

  21. Ryan Leichty

    Tedious, often times difficult primarily because of my lack of Greek or Hebrew understanding , but absolutely breathtaking It s like climbing a mountain challenging, but well worth the view.

  22. Theodros

    This has to be the best study of Romans 9 that i have ever read, if you plan to Preach or Teach on Romans 9 you have to read this book and digest it

  23. Laurent Dv

    The best exegesis of Romans 9 ever written In fact, german exegetes already spot great things before Piper He is very inspired by them.

  24. BJ

    The book that launched Piper into pastoral ministry, and an exquisite exposition of one of the premier biblical chapter s that clearly affirm the absolute sovereign freedom of God.

  25. Jared Hiebert

    This is a fantastic exegesis of Romans 9 A must read for anyone who desires to know the true meaning of this great chapter.
