In Promotion of Un-Illiteracy

As evidence that I really can read (and non-fiction too!) allow me to recommend this book review.  Featured on the Barnes and Noble website is a review of the book Original Sin: A Cultural History by Alan Jacobs.  Original sin is the concept that we are born sinful, and that even infants are in need of the redemptive work of Christ.  Wrestling with the concept of who needs salvation and the grace and fairness of God is surely no easy task.  Jacobs tackles this task head on in such a way that even non-believers would find informative and "worthwhile."  His approach, addressing an important theological concept using a historical approach, has earned this book a spot on my Amazon wish list .  (But if you decide to buy me anything, don't forget to go through the 90&9 link).
