In Bitten by a Camel, Dobson deconstructs much of what passes as Christianity. Then, on the foundation of Jesus and the Bible, he reconstructs a faith that is fulfilling, life-giving, and true—true to himself and true to God. Dobson’s message is funny, poignant, and winsome.

Mattes critically evaluates the role of justification in the theologies of five leading Protestant thinkers—Eberhard Jungel, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Jurgen Moltmann, Robert W.
