More About This Title The Depth of the Human Person


This volume brings together leading theologians, biblical scholars, scientists, philosophers, ethicists, and others to explore the multidimensionality and depth of the human person. Moving away from dualistic (mind-body, spirit-flesh, naturalmental) anthropologies, the book's contributors examine human personhood in terms of a complex flesh-body-mind-heart-soul-conscience-reason-spirit spectrum.

The Depth of the Human Person begins with a provocative essay on the question "Why is personhood conceptually difficult?" It then rises to the challenge of relating theological contributions on the subject to various scientific explorations. Finally, the book turns to contemporary theological-ethical challenges, discussing such subjects as human dignity, embodiment, gender stereotypes, and human personhood at the edges of life.

“Makes invaluable contributions to theological anthropology. . . . The contributions in this book are the type of writings we hungrily look for when we wish to holistically expand our anthropological horizon from a vigorous biblical-theological-scientific perspective. More such interdisciplinary works are always welcome!”
