The Doctrine of Justification in the Church of England

The Doctrine of Justification in the Church of EnglandThe Doctrine of Justification in the Church of England by Robin Leaver.

The doctrine of justification by faith alone was for Luther something to sing about, for Calvin something to think about, and for Cranmer something to pray about. Luther expressed the doctrine in his hymns, Calvin in his Institutes, and Cranmer in his liturgy for the English church. But for all the Reformers, however they expressed the doctrine, justification was the touchstone of their theology, not because they were interested in dogma for its own sake but because they found it to be at the heart of the teaching of Scripture.




This study considers the history of the theology of justification and how the reformers defined it. It notes various debates around the issue and concludes with the contemporary situation. The author concludes that this doctrine has been sadly neglected today, including by evangelicals who ought to have championed it.

Robin Leaver is Professor of Sacred Music at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, USA. He is a noted Bach scholar and hymnologist, with numerous publications to his name.
