    There has been a growing complaint amongst church critics that we don't speak about "sin" from the pulpit anymore. And it's no wonder! Sin is such a downer! Such a depressing subject. "Hey, the cross has removed the debt and placed you in the grace of God - you're free!"

    "Now.... do you want to talk about sin?"

    Not really....

    But if we have adopted the language "I am saved;" then it's probably a good idea to know what it is - that you have been saved from.

    Editors Christopher W. Morgan and Robert A. Peterson offer a wonderful treatise on the subject in their book: Fallen: A Theology of Sin. Is it light reading for the plane trip from Sacramento to Houston? Probably not. The book does read and feel like it's meant for seminary students and pastors - but also to be fair, it's not entirely a "chapter book."

    Each chapter is written by an author or contributing editor who have each wrestled with a particular aspect of sin as a subject. In "Fallen" the contributors cover the fall, sin's origins, meanings, vocabulary, the significance of sin in the world, the role the law played in resolving sin and how we should think about sin today.

    Together the contributors have assembled a wonderful resource that tackles a heavy subject without "feeling" heavy.

    I highly recommend this text as a "return to"  source for teaching and instruction. 

    Thank you to Crossway for this review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
