The Other Side of Sin: Woundedness from the Perspective of the Sinned-Against
The good news of Jesus Christ is for both sinners and the sinned-against. For the past two thousand years, Christian theologians have focused on the experience of sinners, but treated their victims inadequately. To counterbalance this perspective, a diverse group of Christian scholars consider sin “from the other side.” To make sense of Christianity from this standpoint, they offer a more complex and comprehensive analysis of human participation in evil and its reconciliation than the simple formula of sin and repentance. The Other Side of Sin is an original, fresh, and exciting adventure into one of the most needed areas of theological thinking.
