Justification of God by P T Forsyth

Today’s free book is P T Forsyth’s World War I lecture series on Christian Theodicy.

“In his Christian Theology: An Introduction, Alister E. McGrath describes Forsyth’s Justification of God (1916). The book

represents an impassioned plea to allow the notion of the “justice of God” to be rediscovered. Forsyth is less concerned than Anselm for the legal and juridical aspects of the cross; his interest centers on the manner in which the cross is inextricably linked with “the whole moral fabric and movement of the universe.” The doctrine of the atonement is inseparable from “the rightness of things.”
