Publisher's Summary

This engaging and scholarly audiobook offers refreshingly original insights into the contemporary relevance of the Christian doctrine of original sin - one that has inspired fierce debate for the last two millennia.

  • Challenges the many prevailing opinions about the Christian doctrine of original sin, arguing that it is not only theological defensible, but stimulating and productive for a life of faith
  • Shows how it is possible to affirm the universality of sin without losing sight of the distinct ways in which individuals both participate in and suffer the consequences of sinful behaviour
  • Balances historic and contemporary criticism with original theological arguments; combining the substance of a traditional Augustinian doctrine of sin with the pastoral and social concerns of contemporary contextual theologies
  • Provides a depth and range of engagement with contemporary criticism of traditional doctrine that is lacking in other recent treatments of the topic

    "Excellent treatment of ignored truth"
    What did you like most about In Adam's Fall?

    How I wish this came with a PDF of the book, as the author not only summarizes his conversation partners positions succinctly but offers some quite brilliant observations along the way, which I'm confident if sufficiently meditated upon possess a genuinely transformative quality, which of course is the point of Paul's argument that Adam ultimately remains animated dust but through Christ's resurrection we all might participate in his victory and through his 'life giving spirit' become ourselves as he is the 'word made flesh'. Highly recommended but be prepared to hit pause and rewind a lot.
