The First and the Second Adam: Reflections on James Wetzel's Reformulation of a Doctrine

Journal of Religious Ethics 23 (1):27 - 33 (1995)
James Wetzel offers a philosophical reformulation of the doctrine of original sin. In this response I explore the subtleties of his account and question whether his reformulation has not lost something-crucial the connection of original sin and God's grace enacted in Jesus.
