In recent decades, the problem of evil in human affairs has often been explained exclusively in terms of social maladjustment, personal mental disorders, or faulty societal structures. The essays in this volume present a needed interdisciplinary and ecumenical approach to current social problems by exploring the roots of human sinfulness and thereby reopening the discussion of the fall of man. In their preface, the editors observe that oneither frantic alarm over the worldAEs crises, nor the many prescriptions for their cure, can have much point apart from a clear diagnosis of what is fundamentally wrong with the human condition. In the Judeo-Christian and Islamic traditions at least, no notion has functioned as pivotally and inclusively in pointing to the core of human derangement as has sin. To inquire after the source of sin is, however, to raise the question of original sin, an idea that has in fact always been inseparable from the web of human interrelationships.o For the specialist and layman, this volume offers a distinctive range of approaches to contemporary moral and social problems, including contributions from Black and feminist points of view."
