What does it mean to be human and to be made in the image of God? What does it mean to be a 'person'? What constitutes a human person? What does it mean to affirm that humans are free beings? And, what is gender? Marc Cortez guides the reader through the most challenging issues that face anyone attempting to deal with the subject of theological anthropology. Consequently, it addresses complexities surrounding such questions as: Each chapter explains first both why the question under consideration is important for theological anthropology and why it is also a contentious issue within the field. After this, each chapter surveys and concisely explains the main options that have been generated for resolving that particular question. Finally the author presents to the reader one way of working through the complexity. These closing sections are presented as case studies in how to work through the problems and arrive at a conclusion than as definitive answers. Nonetheless, they offer a convincing way of answering the questions raised by each chapter.

Review:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

'The study of theological anthropology raises notoriouslydifficult issues. In this verywell-informed book, Marc Cortez addresses some of the toughest of these issues,and he does so in a way that is not only clear-headed and insightful but alsoscrupulously fair and gracious. Withouttrying to 'solve' all difficulties, he lays out the options, evaluates relativestrengths and weaknesses, and points the way forward.' - Thomas McCall, Associate Professor ofBiblical and Systematic Theology,


(Thomas McCall)

'Cortez provides an accessible, broad and penetrating inttroduction to several key ideas in the area of theological anthropology. Continuing the emphasis of the 'Guide for the Perplexed' series, Cortez chooses four pillars around which to construct his introduction to what it means to be human: imago dei, sexuality, mind and body and free will.' - Kyle Strobel, University of Aberdeen (Kyle Strobel Theological Book Review)

This is a guide to the most challenging issues that face anyone studying theological anthropology. This work will serve to guide the reader through the most challenging issues that face anyone attempting to deal with the subject of theological anthropology. Consequently, it will address the complexities surrounding such questions as: What does it mean to be made in the image of God? What does it mean to be a person ? What constitutes a human person? What does it mean to affirm that humans are free beings? And, what is gender? Each chapter will address one of these fundamental questions with the same basic methodology. It will first explain both why the question under consideration is important for theological anthropology and why it is also a contentious issue within the field. After this, each chapter will survey and concisely explain the main options that have been generated for resolving that particular question. Finally, each chapter will present to the reader one way of working through the complexity. These closing sections will be presented more as case studies in how to work through the problems and arrive at a conclusion than as definitive answers. Nonetheless, they will strive to present a convincing way of answering the questions raised by each chapter. Continuum s Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
