sin.jpgBy John Portmann

In this book, Portmann argues that especially since 9/11, the reality of sin has made a strong comeback. Even liberal Christians such as Bishop Sprong have to take the pervasiveness of personal evil doing seriously. The book starts off in the present and then loops back into the past to outline the key moments in the history of sin from the Ancient Greeks and Israelites through Jesus and Paul to Augustine and Dante and then back to the present day.
