Summer is a great time to read, isn’t it? So why don’t you join us in discussion of Danielle Shroyer’s Original Blessing: Putting Sin in It’s Rightful Place. We also know that summer is a time for travel, so don’t worry about missing sessions. Just keep up with the reading and join us when you are in town!
In this book, Shroyer takes readers through an overview of the historical development of the doctrine of original sin, pointing out important missteps and over-calculations while providing alternative ways to approach often-used Scriptures. Throughout, she brings the primary claims of original sin to their untenable (and unbiblical) conclusions. In Original Blessing, she shows not only how we got this doctrine wrong, but how we can put sin back in its rightful place: in a broader context of redemption and the blessing of humanity’s creation in the image of God.
