Tim Carter.  The Forgiveness of Sins.  James C. Clark & Company.  209 Pages.  ISBN: 9780227176054

In The Forgiveness of Sins , Tim Carter examines the significance of forgiveness in a New Testament context, delving deep into second-century Christian literature on sin and the role of the early church in mitigating it. This crucial spiritual issue is at the core of what it means to be Christian, and Carterís thorough and erudite examination of this theme is a necessity for any professional or amateur scholar of the early church.  The Forgiveness of Sins is a painstaking, clear-eyed exploration of what forgiveness meant not only to early Christians such as Tertullian, Irenaeus and Luke, but to Jesus himself, and what it means to Christians today.  $55.00 from
