Episode: In this episode, Matt & Matt reflect back on the last year of OnScript-ing, answer some listener Q&A, and ... make a big announcement. Yes, we have some exciting news to share with you! Matt L. also quizzes Matt B. about his latest book Salvation By Allegiance Alone: Rethinking Faith, Works, and the Gospel of Jesus the King (Baker, 2017).
Guests: OnScript co-hosts Matt Bates and Matt Lynch. You can read about us here, but basically, we teach and write about the OT & NT. Matt B. depends heavily for his work on people like Matt L., but the reverse is not necessarily the case. Matt L. teaches at Westminster Theological Centre in the UK, and Matt B at Quincy University, in Illinois.
Book: Matt's Salvation By Allegiance Alone offers a 'fresh proposal for what faith means within a biblical theology of salvation, Matthew Bates presses the church toward a new precision: we are saved solely by allegiance to Jesus the king. Instead of faith alone, Christians must speak about salvation by allegiance alone. The book includes discussion questions for students, pastors, and church groups and a foreword by Scot McKnight' (from the Baker Academic website).
