In the last main chapter of the book (pp. 171ff), Scot addresses the issue of what Paul says about Adam and Eve. He is correct that Paul does not say in Rom. 5.12-21 that all have sinned ‘in Adam’. He says all are condemned because all have sinned like Adam. But one has to ask— why would that be universally true if there was not a universal bent to sinning? And if there is such an inclination— Where did it comes from, if God didn’t make us that way? One of things I think is least helpful about the ongoing argument of Scot’s is the idea that Paul and the gang are using the literary Adam and Eve to make an argument, and the literary Adam and Eve is all they know, say for example in Rom. 5.12-21; 1 Cor. 15; 1 Tim. 2.13 and so on.
