WHEN DID SIN BEGIN? Human Evolution and the Doctrine of Original Sin Loren Haarsma

“I wholeheartedly recommend this book to the church as we think through the question of the relationship between the Bible and science.” —TREMPER LONGMAN III, Westmont College

“My own work as a sociologist shows that Christians need rigorous examples of deep theological debate that takes science and Chris- tian doctrine seriously. When Did Sin Begin? is an accessible, lively, rich volume that is an excellent example of this kind of debate.” —ELAINE HOWARD ECKLUND, Rice University; author of Why Science and Faith Need Each Other
