Beyond Original Sin: Recovering Humanity's Creative Urge
Category: Books > Theology > Theology Books
ISBN / ID: 9781626982864
Publisher: Orbis
Price: AU$45.95
Description: The wisdom of paleontology -- the study of human origins -- is creating a revolution that is likely to shake many inherited Christian beliefs, including the doctrine of Original Sin. The long-held belief in a fundamental flaw finds little support in our ancient human story because we consistently encounter a species with an enormous capacity for exploration, innovation, and creativity.

This book does not set out to discard the notion of Original Sin. Instead, it makes a compelling case for a different starting point: our fundamental goodness rather than our flawed sinful condition. Just as the Book of Genesis declares all to be good in the eyes of God, why not begin with our human foundational creative urge as the basis for faith and spirituality?
