The Doctrine of Original Sin, as Received and Taught by the Churches of the Reformation Stated and Defended, and the Error of Dr. Hodge in Claiming that this Doctrine Recognizes the Gratuitous Imputation of Sin, Pointed Out and Refuted (1844)
Considered a classic in its field, this book of over 550 pages takes on Charles Hodge and his views concerning original sin.
The author states that the "doctrine concerning Imputation and Original Sin" as taught "for many years past, in the Theological School at Princeton" is a "radical departure from... recognized Augustinian theology, or Calvinism."
The author also notes "that the difference in this issue is fundamental to evangelical doctrine. The design of the present tractate, therefore, is to furnish a thorough historical, theological, and exegetical discussion of the essential points which this issue involves."
Furthermore, Landis writes (concerning Hodge's view) that "the church herself can ultimately and logically have no possible alternative but either to abandon all the distinctive principles of the Augustinian or evangelical system of doctrine, or to reject this (i.e. Hodge's--RB) theory utterly and in all its parts."
