504 Includes bibliographical references (pages 258-272) and
520 "Is original sin compatible with evolution? Many today
believe the answer is "No." Engaging Aquinas's
revolutionary account of the doctrine, Daniel W. Houck
argues that there is not necessarily a conflict between
this Christian teaching and mainstream biology. He draws
on neglected texts outside the Summa Theologiae to show
that Aquinas focused on humanity's loss of friendship with
God-not the corruption of nature (or personal guilt).
Aquinas's account is theologically attractive in its own
right. Houck proposes, moreover, a new Thomist view of
original sin that is consonant with evolution. This
account is developed in dialogue with biblical scholarship
on Jewish hamartiology and salient modern thinkers
(including Kant, Schleiermacher, Barth, and Schoonenberg),
and it is systematically connected to debates over nature,
grace, the desire for God, and justification. In addition,
the book canvasses a number of neglected premodern
approaches to original sin, including those of Anselm,
Abelard, and Lombard"--|cProvided by publisher.
