Readings in Christian Humanism
Paperback. 688 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.The legacy and power of Christian humanism- True Christian humanism is the full flowering of the theology of the Incarnation. It is rooted in a totally new concept of what it means to be human that grew out of the mystery of the union of God and humanity in Christ. -Thomas Merton From biblical times to the present day, the massively influential and engaging tradition of Christian reflection on the value of being human is presented here. With its primary documents, carefully selected and edited by a team of experts, Readings in Christian Humanism fully represents the variety and vitality of the humanistic tradition found in historic Christianity. Bringing together highlights from the almost unlimited gallery of Christian humanist thinkers as stimulants to our own imaginations, this anthology also boldly sets claim to a ground for Christian humanism today. An invaluable resource for students concerned with human dignity and sovereignty under God. -George H. Williams, Harvard University A splendid, wide-ranging, ecumenical collection. -Theodore M. Hesburgh, University of Notre Dame Christians and non-Christians alike will profit from the stimulus of people who enjoy being part of the race that God honored by choosing to dwell in it. -Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago The research and editorial development of this volume was directed by: Joseph M. Shaw, Saint Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota; R. W.
