    I highly recommend this book! The concept of Theology in Community is wonderful, and the group of scholars contributing to this book is great. They deal with the heavy topic of sin in a way that is thorough and academic, but also easy to follow and understand. The topic of sin can be a discouraging and defeating one, but this book presents not only the dark realities of sin, but the power of Christ to overcome. This book is so Gospel-cantered and encouraging in that manner. After exploring sin i I highly recommend this book! The concept of Theology in Community is wonderful, and the group of scholars contributing to this book is great.

The topic of sin can be a discouraging and defeating one, but this book presents not only the dark realities of sin, but the power of Christ to overcome. This book is so Gospel-cantered and encouraging in that manner. After exploring sin in the biblical story and applying a theology of sin to our modern context, the authors also discuss how to deal with sin and temptation and then conclude with a chapter about repentance and the joy that it brings. Needless to say, I would love to read another book of the Theology in Community series, and I highly recommend this book for a biblical theology of sin and modern day application of it!

    In the end, Fallen is a tremendously helpful book. It brings together a combination of biblical, theological, and practical perspectives on an important topic, packing an awful lot into just 300 pages. And it will be most useful when you understand what it really is—a biblical theology of sin with a quick overview of how that biblical material relates to several theological and practical issues. To get the most out of Fallen, then, I think you would do well to pair it with a book that offers a m In the end, Fallen is a tremendously helpful book.

To get the most out of Fallen, then, I think you would do well to pair it with a book that offers a more constructive theology of sin (e.g. Plantinga’s very readable Not the Way It’s Supposed to Be: A Breviary of Sin or Shuster’s more involved The Fall and Sin: What We Have Become as Sinners).

    An excellent overview of the theology of sin. after reading this, I grew more convinced of my sin and all its angles and possible manifestations... and grew more grateful to my Savior who rescued me. Worth the read!

    Although sin is becoming a taboo topic in recent years, the authors of these essays tackle the topic in a thoughtful, studious and practical way. Some chapters are way too academic for me, but I must admit I learned quite a bit as well. Sin is a huge problem for humanity, one that no one can escape. It should not be watered down or brushed aside, and yet we must be very careful in the application, especially since we tend to see everyone else's sin before we see our own.

    I'm already frustrated. More and more, I get the feeling that christian publishers unfairly bilk their buyers when they choose the ebook format. This book is an example. The price of this ebook, relative to the hard copy, is inexcusable. I will not be purchasing this title. What a shame. I'm already frustrated.

    The chapters by Carson, Moo, Bray, and Chapell were especially good. I didn't care for Mahony's chapter. The chapters by Carson, Moo, Bray, and Chapell were especially good. I didn't care for Mahony's chapter.
