"Written from an ecumenical Reformed perspective heavily indebted to Augustine and arguably Barth, the books strength lies in its sophisticated argument in favor of Augustines enduring relevance to ecclesial life generally and the doctrine of original sin specifically, especially the illuminating discourse on willing which paints a surprisingly complex view of the will in concrete acts of sin." (Religious Studies Review, 1 December 2011)

"Libraries that support advanced classes in theology will find this a worthwhile addition. Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 May 2011)
