Item Description...
Overview
The devastating evils of recent history have brought about renewed interest in the Christian doctrine of sin. This volume explores with fresh insight and great seriousness the contemporary plausibility, meaning, and relevance of the biblical understanding of the Fall and its effects. Marguerite Shuster argues that certain aspects of the traditional doctrine of the Fall, including the belief that it took place in time and space, cannot simply be set aside without serious consequences for our doctrine of God and our understanding of human identity, dignity, and responsibility. She explores the nature and extent of sin and examines such problematic issues as "degrees" of sin and culpability. Despite the seriousness with which Shuster treats these topics, her discussion is not despairing but instead points to the redemption that God has accomplished in Christ. Filled with contemporary allusions and completed with model sermons on the Fall and sin, this volume is one of the best available studies of this key Christian doctrine.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too liberal to be Biblical  May 18, 2010
There are many redeeming qualities to this book. Some of these include that it has a fairly thorough academic background, making it useful for reviewing several positions in one place. This also means the bibliography is useful for finding sources on particular points of view. Finally, most of the positional critiques are fair in their presentation and not overly polemic or biased. However, to call this work conservative or Calvinist is being generous.
In fact the work is quite really against some basic biblical principles. First of these is that The Scripture plainly teaches that women are not to be putting themselves or to be put into positions of authority over men in the church (1 Timothy 2:12 and following). Contrary to this, Marguerite Shuster is teaching at a Seminary, both men and women, about preaching and teaching and theology. That makes this work first and foremost a product of sinful behavior. This does not mean the work is inherently sinful but does certainly mean that it is the fruit of sin and as such is a tremendously ironic work. Along this same line there are several areas where Dr. Shuster takes the feminist position (see pages 56-57 for an example).
That this work is against palagianism and for the most part arminianism cannot be disputed. She makes strong attempts to relate a Total Depravity view of the Fall and for the most part does so successfully.

Long story short, I originally bought this book to be use as a source for a paper in support for the calvinistic position on the Doctrine of the fall and ended up using as a source representing the feminist view in my paper.
