This is a valuable book and I would hope it appears on the reading list of Bible scholars. It consists of a series of essays by scholars of different backgrounds. The editors give their aim as: ‘[W]e have sought to demonstrate that a historical Adam and original sin are essential, irremovable, relevant and credible elements of the Christian faith’. This is an aim which is well achieved.
