Product Description

Where do we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? How can we get there? These are the basic religious questions that we all ask amid the possibilities and limitations of life, it successes and failures, its blessings and tragedies. Christian faith has a particular vision of God, the world, and of humanity, a vision that issues from the person and ministry of Jesus Christ. He is the reason why Christians are convinced our lives do make sense, that we and our world are created in love and for love and that we are destined to find final healing and fulfillment together by sharing in God's own devine life.

Publisher's Description

The incredible technical achievements of recent history may make us feel little less than gods," but we also find much that cuts us down. When we face our own limits and failures, upon what or whom can we rely?

The biblical "answer" to questions about the ultimate nature and meaning of human life begins with the experience of Semitic slaves led out of Egyptian slavery beautifully recounted in Deuteronomy 26:5-11. The New Testament presents Jesus as the culmination of God's Old Testament promise.

Christian faith has a particular Vision of the world and of humanity founded upon the relationship between God and creation. Its key elements are found in the inviolable dignity of every person, the essential centrality of community, and the significance of human action. These are the main themes of a Christian anthropology developed in this book.
