- I think the title of the book is misleading, I fail to see any philosophy in it as the title suggests. Moreover, it makes sin independent or existing with a mind of its own. While there are helpful aspects in the book to understand the nature of sin, labeling as a philosophy gives it a wrong impression.
- Interestingly, that's actually exactly how Paul describes it. Romans 6-8 reveals sin as a power. It's not just the wrong deeds of people, it is actually a domain or power which enslaves people. If we miss this, we miss Paul's Spirit-led understanding and revelation of what Sin is. Remember, in Romans, Paul doesn't describe Jesus as being condemned by the Father, but Sin itself was condemned in the flesh of Christ.
