Greg Gilbert thinks so.  Check it out here:

and, since Gilbert is following D.A. Carson who lays a lot of the blame for watering down the gospel at the feet of N.T. Wright, here is a promo for Wright’s work on “Justification.”

Is Wright’s “big picture Gospel” a distortion of a biblical presentation aimed primarily at individual sinners who are alienated from God or is the traditional evangelical Carson/Gilbert view too narrow?  Is it possible to even discuss this without the conversation becoming too heated to get anywhere?
