Original Sinners: Why Genesis Still Matters Original Sinners: Why Genesis Still Matters

by John R. Coats

Book Reviews

"Accessible and lively new addition to Genesis scholarship . . . The author makes complex biblical scholarship comprehensible . . . Compelling and thought provoking." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"For far too long (forever, in fact), Western civilization has been rolling atop a wave-tossed sea of biblical assumptions about who we are, where we came from, and what on earth we're doing here. Anyone with a fresh desire to stand steady on the deck of Judeo-Christian theology could not hope for a better navigator than John Coats, the most perfect guide through these troubled waters, an eloquent and generous writer who casts illumination in all directions. Plus, there's a secret pleasure to Original Sinners: it's enormously fun to read."
-- Bob Shacochis, National Book Award-winning author of Easy in the Islands and The Immaculate Invasion

"This engaging, well-written retelling of the Genesis story...uses conclusions of modern biblical criticism to emphasize the human story of the biblical narrative as myth from which nonreligious and religious alike can gain psychological insight and wisdom . . . His contemporary life comparisons [are] enlightening . . . Readers . . . will revel in his insights." -- Library Journal
