Very interesting …

 Lev Shestov on the Fall of Man - by William F. Val

Having studied philosophy with a distinctly existentialist slant, I am of course familiar with and sympathetic to Shestov. But I think the key point, if you believe in a God who created the world and mankind, is that he gave us free will. He didn’t create us as automatons. So right from the start there was the possibility that we would choose wrong. It was a risk God was willing to take. And his Son paid a high and awful price to save us from the consequences of that.
