Making Sense of Man and Sin
Taken from the bestselling Systematic Theology text, the Making Sense of Series offers people bite-size pieces of seven core biblical doctrines. Making Sense of Man and Sin provides a clear biblical basis, clarity in the explanations, application to life, and much more for the doctrine of Scripture.
With clear writing—technical terms kept to a minimum—and a contemporary approach, emphasizing how each doctrine should be understood and applied by present-day Christians, Making Sense of Man and Sin explores how mankind is distorted, but not lost, through sin and is renewed through redemption in Christ.
Topics include but are not limited to the creation of male and female, including harmonious personal relationships, equality in personhood and importance, and difference in role and authority; equality and differences in the Trinity; the essential nature of man; and our inherited guilt and corruption because of Adam’s sin.
Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of Man and Sin helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.
