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. "

Vatican II ushered in a new outlook on living as Catholic Christians in a global world. This book is a student-friendly textbook on what it means to be human in light of our changing world and church. Each chapter will emphasize one particular aspect of human existence, exegeting the relevant biblical texts, classical and contemporary doctrines, and challenges to living these teachings in the twenty-first century. The book is divided into thirteen chapters, correlating with a typical length of a semester. Course instructors can shape their syllabi around this structure, perhaps dividing the week between lecture, discussion, and exercises, the latter of which will be outlined at the end of each chapter. This exploration of theological anthropology invites students from all levels, including undergraduate, seminary students, and engaged believers, into the conversation.

Every Christian healthcare professional practices from assumptions, with a framework for understanding what it means to be a person, how wounding and brokenness occur, and how healing and restoration occur. For many, their assumptions are implicit, guiding perceptions and actions without being consciously articulated and examined. One purpose of this volume is to assist Christian healthcare professionals in articulating their assumptions by presenting three perspectives that are explicit, scientifically and theologically informed, internally consistent, and compatible with Christian tradition. The reader can then use these perspectives to stimulate self reflection. In a culture that is as diverse as American culture, we see the effects of diversity in healthcare practice. Today we witness attempts to integrate the natural and the supernatural in holistic healthcare practices. In these attempts, the spiritual practices that have found most favour and use have come mostly from the Asian Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Traditional Christian healing practices have been largely ignored. An exception is the researched and demonstrated value of forgiveness. One difficulty we have encountered in making a case for Christian healing practices in healthcare is that we have not had an adequate framework of understanding from which to grasp what we do in Christian healing. The writers in this volume have approached the subject of Christian healing by asking how we as Christians understand the human person, human brokenness/wounding, and human healing/wholeness, in all dimensions of our existence, body, mind and spirit. This has led to a clearer understanding of the ways that healing occurs and, most especially, a clearer understanding of how to apply Christian healing practices in healthcare as we trust in the love and mercy of our God, manifest in Jesus Christ.

Throughout its entire history, the discipline of anthropology has been perceived as undermining, or even discrediting, Christian faith. Many of its most prominent theorists have been agnostics who assumed that ethnographic findings and theories had exposed religious beliefs to be untenable. E. B. Tylor, the founder of the discipline in Britain, lost his faith through studying anthropology. James Frazer saw the material that he presented in his highly influential work, The Golden Bough, as demonstrating that Christian thought was based on the erroneous thought patterns of 'savages.' On the other hand, some of the most eminent anthropologists have been Christians, including E. E. Evans-Pritchard, Mary Douglas, Victor Turner, and Edith Turner. Moreover, they openly presented articulate reasons for how their religious convictions cohered with their professional work. Despite being a major site of friction between faith and modern thought, the relationship between anthropology and Christianity has never before been the subject of a book-length study. In this groundbreaking work, Timothy Larsen examines the point where doubt and faith collide with anthropological theory and evidence.
