9780836200348: Genesis Regained

Mr. Sheed has written so many books of theological popularization that, inevitably, some of them were indifferent. The present work, however, is good. Genesis Regained is an exposition of the opening chapters of Genesis, those concerning the creation of the universe and of man, and the Fall. The subject is controversial enough and speculative enough -for Sheed to be at his best from the standpoints both of theology and of literature. He considers the problems inherent in those chapters -- the similarity of the narrative to other Near-Eastern creation myths, the symbolism of Genesis, the ""process"" of creating a universe, man, sin and original sin, and that former bete noire of the theologians, the theory of evolution -- in the manner that one has come to expect of Sheed: in depth and breadth, with erudition, and without being able to resist the temptation of the bon mot. And if there is nothing startlingly new in the book, neither is there anything, startlingly old although the author is not always able to conceal the fact that his sympathies are with the past rather than with the present. On the whole, therefore, the book will appeal to those Catholics who are lovers-of new words and old concepts.
