In From Sin to Amazing Grace, Cheng argues that people need to be liberated from the traditional thinking about sin as a violation of divine and natural laws in which grace is understood as the strength to refrain from violating such laws. He proposes a Christological model based upon the theologies of Irenaeus, Bonaventure, and Barth, in which sin and grace are defined in terms of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. This book will serve as a useful resource for all people who struggle to make sense of traditional Christian doctrines in the context of the twenty-first century.
