Lee at Two Edged Sword has been posting a very useful series on the Federal Vision controversy. His latest is an analysis of the Mississippi Valley Presbytery report, which came out recently criticizing the Federal Vision / Auburn Avenue / Norm Shepherd / New Perspectives issue. That’s a lot of issues to criticize in one report, which is one of Lee’s criticisms of the report.
They tried to take on too much. This report examines The New Perspectives on Paul, Bishop N.T. Wright, Norman Shepherd, and the Federal Vision. This would have better been split into several papers. One of the chief complaints made by the Auburn Avenue Church is that the report does not recognize the nuances of their argumentation, and it does seem to overlook some.
This is a helpful analysis, and I’d recommend it to anyone trying to understand this difficult and complicated issue.
