Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The notion of treating a classic notion from ‘the other side,’ in this case the experience of the sinned-against, is very fruitful and opens up any number of subsequent conversations. The contributors share some remarkable insights.” — Larry L. Rasmussen, author of Ethics for a Small Planet: New Horizons on Population, Consumption, and Ecology
Booknews
In these nine essays, Christian theologians, Biblical scholars, and clergy consider the experience of sin from the perspective of those who have been its victims. They discuss human participation in evil, and the possibility of forgiveness and reconciliation. Alienation, shame, the teaching of justice and reconciliation, and hospitality to victims are emphasized. Old Testament, Asiatic, historical, feminist, activist, ethical, and educational perspectives are all considered. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
