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.
