Would you be interested in St. Paul? Council of Trent? Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition? The Book of Genesis, first three chapters? Holy Spirit?
Just curious. Does Jerry Korsmeyer understand the various doctrines involving Original Sin?
I mean the Catholic doctrines involving Original Sin.
I've read his book. He's familiar enough with them, but he prefers to take papal statements out of context as license to demolish Catholic tradition. Not only does he support polygenism, he also finds it perfectly theologically acceptable to say that "original sin" was not an act of free will, but a metaphor for our evolutionary baggage. His theology is extremely unimaginative; it is one of the most boring and uninsightful reads I've ever wasted 2 hours on (it was that vacuous; you can easily read it in an afternoon.)
