Reviews - What do customers think about Offense to Reason: A Theology of Sin?
Sin Must be Dealt With Nov 30, 2005
Ramm rightly wants to discuss what he feels has been a neglected and abused teaching of Christianity, namely sin.
He uses as his main thesis the thoughts of Blaise Pascal on the subject: the Biblical teaching of sin is offensive to reason and repelled by academia and intelligentia, but without it much of human history and life remains opaque, but with it there is much reflection upon social history and progress.
His trip through the thought on this vital topic among theologians is engaging, but leans too much on the more famous liberal theologians,i.e. Schleiermacher, Tillich, etc. He does touch on however when this doctrine gets out of its God-given function, it disturbs one's whole theology.
