Fisking Piper's Assertions on the New Perspective

Mark Horne has been taking Piper to task for his recent column concerning N.T. Wright and the New Perspective on Paul. His most recent post on the matter questions how Piper can assert that men like Wright are denying or obscuring the testimony of Jesus.

By showing that Piper, "makes amazing accusations without any basis whatsoever," Horne demonstrates that Piper's allegations are merely rhetoric and are not substantiated with an argument.

Horne argues that there is some merit to Wright's statements and that they are not to be dismissed with simple rhetoric, but dealt with seriously and evenhandedly.
