Product Description

From the publisher: Iain Campbell focuses his attention on the doctrine of sin and first views it in its biblical context. He then investigates the views of Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Owen, Thomas Goodwin, Stephen Charnock, Charles Hodge, John Murray, and G.C. Berkouwer. Within this stream of thinking there has remained an emphasis on sin as objective and factual. He then compares and contrasts that with Barth, Bultmann and Brunner--showing how the modern theologies view the sin of man as little more than personal disfunction.

Publisher's Description

Modern theology reveres the names of Karl Barth, Rudolf Bultmann and Emil Brunner, hailed as the heroes of a new, modern and re-stated Reformation theology - a new orthodoxy for a new age.


In this book, Iain D. Campbell focuses on one doctrine - the doctrine of sin - and views it first in its biblical perspective, and then considers the perspective of the Reformers and Puritans. He compares and contrasts their approach with that of Barth, Bultmann and Brunner. He also shows how the modern theologies have evacuated the Evangel of its power and saving influence by reducing the sin of man to little more than personal dysfunction.


The Gospel is shown to be the power of God to salvation, because there is an emphasis on sin as objective and factual, leaving people in need of the saving work of Jesus Christ. The new orthodoxy is shown to be not a re-statement of the Gospel, but as Paul reminded his readers long ago, 'a different gospel'.

Author Bio

Rev. Dr. Iain D. Campbell is pastor of the Free Church of Scotland in Point on the Isle of Lewis. Prior to that he was the pastor of Back Free Church of Scotland, also on Lewis. He was Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland in 2012.

Editorial Reviews

This is a well written, well structured introduction to Reformed and Neo-orthodox thought on the doctrine of sin, carrying with it momentous implications for the doctrine of salvation.

"In a day in which there is increasing evidence of the syncretism of evangelical theology and neo-orthodoxy, even in the Reformed community, Iain D. Campbell has provided a timely antidote in his excellent study of The Doctrine of Sin. Campbell capably summarizes the main lines of biblical and Reformed thinking on the doctrine of the Fall and sin, and contrasts that teaching with the opinions of leading proponents of the so-called new orthodoxy. The result is ....a crucial caveat against our witting or unwitting concession to the subjectivising tendencies of the neo-orthodox view of sin"

"In this careful study of the doctrine of sin Iain Campbell has provided a valuable and much-needed gift to his fellow Christians. His summaries of the teaching of Scripture will prove to be invaluable to many readers; his discussion of the theology of the major Reformers, the Puritans and their successors will give them a welcome bonus... Ministers, students and all serious-minded Christians should find a work worth turning to again and again."
