CONRADIE, Ernst M.. John Haught on original sin: A conversation. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2016, vol.72, n.4, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article engages with John Haught's views on original sin. It offers a brief orientation to discourse on sin in the context of theological debates on human evolution. This is followed by a thick description of Haught's so-called note on original sin. A series of five observations and questions regarding Haught's position is offered. It is observed that Haught's way of telling the story of sin and salvation follows a classic Roman Catholic plot, namely one based on grace elevating nature. This is contrasted with the more typically reformed plot of restoration.
