"'An extraordinary piece of detective work. Anderson shows how the central way of representing and conceiving sin changed dramatically within biblical times, and how this change in turn came to be elaborated in later Judaism and Christianity. This is an extremely important, indeed, mind-changing book for anyone interested in the history of these two religions.' James Kugel, Harvard University"
