Abstract

The author contends that the grace of God is absolutely necessary to lead a good life and be saved. Human beings cannot redeem themselves. Redemption and reconciliation with God and others depends upon Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World. He illustrates human need in this regard with up-to-date perspectives on the Genesis presentation of sin, and particularly as portrayed in the Adam and Eve story of Chapter 3. His presentation amounts to a contemporary approach to the historical doctrine of original sin.
