About this title


The twentieth century has witnessed suffering and human cruelty on a scale never before imagined. Yet, paradoxically, the doctrine of original sin has undergone neglect in recent years. In this sophisticated treatment of the biblical evidence for original sin, Henri Blocher offers a robust study that interacts with the best scientific, literary, and theological thinking on the subject. Building his argument on a detailed analysis of the scriptural evidence for original sin, especially looking at key texts in Genesis and Romans, Blocher shows, with due consideration to current intellectual objections to the doctrine, that while the nature of original sin is certainly a mystery, only belief in it makes sense of evil and wrongdoing.

About the Author:

In October 2003, Henri Blocher was appointed to the Guenther H. Knoedler Chair of Theology at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Since 1965 he has served as professor of systematic theology at the Faculté Libre de Théologie Evangélique in Vaux-sur-Seine near Paris, France. A leading evangelical theologian and statesman, Blocher was a member of the Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization (1975-1980), served the World Evangelical Fellowship/Alliance in a number of capacities, and taught in schools in Europe, Australia, Africa, Canada and the US. He is currently president of the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians. Blocher studied at a number of institutions including the Sorbonne, London Bible College, Gordon Divinity School, and Faculté Libre de Théologie Protestant of Paris. He has written six books, four of which have appeared in English, and several dozen articles. His English publications include Original Sin: Illuminating the Riddle, Evil and the Cross: Christian Thought and the Problem of Evil and In the Beginning: The Opening chapters of Genesis.
