The Sources of the Doctrines of the Fall and Original Sin, Paperback / softback Book

The Sources of the Doctrines of the Fall and Original Sin Paperback / softback


First published in 1903, this book is a historical study of the sources and development of the doctrines of the Fall and Original Sin.

It was written as the companion volume to The Origin and Propagation of Sin, in which the author supplied a critical analysis of the topic.

Dealing with the sources of the Hebrew Fall-story and the propagation, from this narrative, of Jewish and Christian theories relating to human sinfulness, it gathers together a broad array of literature for use by the student of theology.

The text is consummately edited and contains exhaustive notes, together with a large index of names and religious passages.

It will be of value to anyone with an interest in religious history or theology.
