Overview

This book discusses the Christian doctrine of sin in relation to sexual abuse of children and the Holocaust, allowing these pathological situations to illuminate and question our understanding of sin. Taking seriously the explanatory power of secular discourses for analyzing and regulating therapeutic action in relation to such situations, the book asks whether the theological language of sin can offer further illumination by speaking of God and the world together. The book is unusual in discussing the Holocaust in relation to Christian doctrine.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The profound questions broached in Bound to Sin make it an important addition to the growing theological literature on sin and responsibility." Interpretation

"This book offers an excellent analysis of Augustine's doctrine of the will. It also provides a surprisingly fresh and appreciative overview of feminist literature as it relates to the topic of sin." Thomas E. Breidenthal, Anglican Theological Review
