(Thus they powerfully expose, as being hopelessly out of touch with what it means to be Christian, the slightest hint of supersessionism or anti-Judaism.) In part 1, after outlining Jewish and Christian understanding of sin and describing our contemporary inability to accept personal guilt for sins we do not commit, the authors offer helpful insight into the pervasive reality of original sin; they point out, for example, how we are born into, become part of, and also personally contribute to the further destruction of an already ecologically damaged world. The dogma's felicitous precision affirms not only the traditional belief that Christ alone is the redeemer of all who are redeemed, but in also affirming that Mary, preserved from all taint of original sin, is redeemed on account of the foreseen merit of Christ, the dogma also allows the affirmation that these same foreseen merits of Christ were at work in the sanctification of the holy ones of Israel and even of pre-Israel (e.g., in Abel and Noah [ecclesia ab Abel]).
