If you are following the debate that has taken place regarding the ‘New Perspective’ on Paul (how long before new is no longer new?), you are aware that a while back John Piper wrote The Future of Justification: A Response to N.T. Wright that made a bit of a stir. Well, N.T. Wright is coming out with a book that responds to many of his critics, but to Piper’s book in particular. If you would like to see more, Michael Bird has a nice summary on his blog.

I stumbled upon this quiz today through one of the blogs I subscribe to. The author of the quiz is Scot McKnight, whom I have developed a respect for as someone who engages in discussion that is typically profound and productive.
Like many of these magazine quizzes (admit it, you’ve taken a quiz from Cosmo before), there is a lot of room for error. You may disagree with the end label you are given. However, I found that the process of taking the quiz made me ask a lot of questions. Coming up with an answer typically made me ask myself some hard questions. I discovered some of my own tendencies. I’m interested to hear other’s thoughts.
Once this is posted, I will put my score and comments in the comments section. Please do the same and it will be very interesting to discuss our hermeneutical differences and similarities.
