Today’s post is the second of two by Karl Giberson and is adapted from his newly published Saving the Original Sinner: How Christians Have Used the Bible’s First Man to Oppress, Inspire, and Make Sense of the World.  Giberson teaches Science & Religion at Stonehill College and is a key figure in the science/faith dialogue.
