We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month.

Summary of Dr. Horton on Bishop N.T. Wright's Views of Justification by Faith Alone

Michael Horton Reviews N.T. Wright on "Justification"
Thanks to Trevin Wax, here is a list of Michael Horton's series of reviews on N.T. Wright's book on Justification.
Justification and God’s single plan: The Covenant and History
Justification and God’s people
Justification and God’s Righteousness: Imputation and Future Hope
Justification and God’s Righteousness: Covenant and Eschatology
Justification, Faith, and Faithfulness: The Works of the Law
Justification and the Testimony of Paul
Justification and Romans
“Works of the Law” – Soteriology and Ecclesiology
Horton makes some good points here, several criticisms I would qualify or contest, but an even handed review overall. Horton and I will be engaging each other in a forthcoming IVP volume on four views of justification in the future where I'm down to advocate something called the "progressive reformed view" (sadly the word "progressive" carries all sorts of freighted connotations that I'll have to carefully qualify).
