Product Description

In contemporary theology, the relationship between religion and science remains one of the more contentious subjects. Korsmeyer (God-Creature-Revelation, Univ. Pr. of America, 1994) bravely and successfully tackles one of the thorniest issues--evolution and theology--offering a theological reintepretation of the Catholic doctrine of original sin in light of evolutionary scientific evidence. The Church's acceptance of the literal truth of the story of humanity's fall in Genesis provides the starting point for this discussion. Korsmeyer uses a combination of historical, philosophical, theological, scriptural, scientific, and magisterial ideas in his reinterpretation of original sin. In the final chapter, Korsmeyer bases his reinterpretation on a neoclassical evolutionary understanding of the cosmos and humanity and their developing relationship to God. This book makes a significant contribution to our theological understanding of original sin and helps to bridge the gap between theology and science.
