more on "Justification"

This post by Peter Leithart is very interesting. The way in which the Reformers used and understood the term "justify" is at odds with the Patristic usage. Yet, as Leithart notes, "the idea seems to be that the Reformers find the patristic usage acceptable, based on the analogy of faith and the overall sense of Scripture. In short, they do not dispute about words, but about the substance of the doctrine of justification."
