Review

Anglican Journal"This insightful book is leavened with charm and wit."Augsburg Fortress Book News"Especially valuable for preachers, seminary students, and AIMs. Plantinga provides a sophisticated analysis of sin . . . A welcome corrective to contemporary theological reactions against Neo-orthodoxy."Booklist"The book is almost always interesting, often provocative, and sometimes infuriating. . . Plantinga's insistence that sin is a theologically and philosophically relevant category deserves serious consideration."CBA Bookstore Journal"His patient dissection, clear writing style, and ease with metaphor make this book a valuable catalog of sin's various mutations. . . Pastors and counselors will find this book especially valuable."Interpretation"Plantinga's new book is as fine an instrument as a mere book can be for reintroducing Christendom to the concept of sin. It is conceptually sophisticated without being technical or academic. . . A stunning feast of metaphors and memorable formulas, of illustrations from private and public life gleaned from history, biographies, fiction, newspapers and magazines, and personal experience -- as well as an occasional theologian. This is theology for preachers and others who live and work close to the ground."Journal of Theology for Southern Africa"A fascinating and very readable theology of sin."Librarian's World (Evangelical Church Library Association)"Highly recommended reading and a must for church libraries."Princeton Seminary Bulletin"A coherent, substantive theological treatise with a wealth of homiletical insights and real-life connections."Provident Book Finder"An excellent book . . . Cornelius Plantinga makes his book both fascinating and clear."Theology Today"A refreshing and updated presentation of the traditional Christian understanding of sin and how it affects every aspect of our personhood. . . Engaging and worthwhile."
