There has been a dearth of writing on the subject of sin in recent years. Considering the desperately serious view which the Old Testament takes of it, more attention should be given to it in present day theology. The primary factors in sin and salvation are a righteous God and sinful man. Some means must be sought whereby the two can live harmoniously in the same universe. Sin in all forms is actually a strange and terrible conflict with the Supreme Reality, which is God. The real problem lies in this defiance of God. [TRUNCATED]
