This paper presents a book report on "The Biblical Doctrine of Sin" which presents the definition and biblical representation of sin and its meaning for humans. The paper then presents a separate essay on J. Dwight Pentecost's "Things to Come", a book that presents the whole field of prophecy into a unified biblical doctrine, a systematic and complete biblical eschatology.

From the Paper:

"Judaism, Islam, and Christianity teach that sin is an offense against a personal God. In the Old Testament, or Hebrew Bible, sin is seen as transgression against the command or law of God. Adam and Eve committed the first sin, and the effects of that sin have passed on to their descendants. In Christian theology this Original Sin is understood to have resulted in a change in the souls of individuals so that they are born as sinners and the tendency to sin is rooted in their nature.
"A sin, in Christian theology, is not only a deed, but also a thought, motive, or desire in opposition to the eternal law of God. This is illustrated by the traditional teaching of the Seven Deadly Sins: pride, avarice, lust, envy, gluttony, anger, and sloth. Pride is regarded as the sin that most surely separates a sinner from the grace of God. Deliverance is possible only through Jesus Christ, whose sacrificial death redeems the repentant sinner from the penalty and power of sin."
