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.

"The Great Dance" is astonishing vision of human life and the mystery of its intersection with the life of the Triune God. Dr. Kruger charts a course from the Trinity to the incarnation to the union of humanity with God in Jesus Christ. In that light he offers a breathtaking interpretation of our human existence as participation in the life of the Father, Son and Spirit. He uncovers the untold dignity of our ordinary humanity--from motherhood to baseball, from relationships and music to golf, gardening and designing lakes. This is a book about who we are and why we are here and what is really happening in our lives. Step by step, Dr. Kruger walks us through the stratagems of evil and the messes we make of our lives. More important, he explains why we hurt, what we are really after and how to get there, and why faith in Jesus Christ is so critical for abundant life. "The Great Dance" is theology at its very best--steeped in tradition, yet unfamiliar and exciting, even revolutionary; deeply personal and honest, yet universally relevant. Written with pace and poetry and winsome grace, "The Great Dance" is the voice of the ancient church speaking to us across the ages through the pen of a Southerner who loves life. C. Baxter Kruger (Ph.D., Kings College, University of Aberdeen) is a theologian, writer, and fishing lure designer. A native of Prentiss, Mississippi, he has worked as a minister to college students, as a lecturer in theology, and as an associate pastor. He is an avid fisherman and golfer, loves coaching little league baseball and has designed a range of fishing lures called "Dr. K's Klones." He and his wife Beth have three children -- Baxter, Laura and Kathryn.

Freedom comes with it a level of responsibility; it places a reasonable obligation on the individual. Freedom ought to make the individual humble enough to know and accept his/her place in the order of things. It helps one to appreciate one’s humanity and also to recognize one’s capabilities and limitations. Freedom is a gift from God with which the individual ought to enter into a relationship with the Creator; it should not be a reason to abandon the Creator. I am convinced that the proper use of freedom will surely make the world a better place and bring glory to God who is the source and summit of our freedom and ultimately of our existence. I do not pretend to have the answers to the many questions that I have already raised neither do I lay any claim to having the intention to exhaust all the questions that could be posed in relation to the issue of freedom. I am simply setting out on a journey of exploration of freedom and I am hoping that by the end of the journey I would have been able to arrive at some point of clarity to myself and hopefully others who would read this work as to what constitutes true freedom and in whom this true freedom could be found. I will sure be operating from my Christian background and hope that at the end I would have been able to prove like St. John Paul II once said: “Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what is right

All roads in the church lead to humankind, Pope John Paul II wrote in his first encyclical. But what is it to be a human being? And what vision does Christian theology offer for being and becoming human? In the past, theology has taken the role of the dominant ideology in a society, claiming to present a complete vision of humankind and its place in creation. Now, Comblin argues, we need to reestablish the primacy of the biblical message and tradition being lived today. The Bible espouses a non-idealized, non-individualized, but realistic and communitarian view of what it means to be human. This can be called the humanity of the two-thirds world, those whose humanity does not figure in the ideology of the privileged few. As Comblin writes, The privileged forget their bodies. Those who have never been truly hungry do not understand that a human being is first and foremost a being who needs to eat. Today, it is the poor who live through their bodies, and theology makes an option for the poor. A new model of theology is emerging from Christian communities growing up all over the globe. And yet it is an old model, too, that finds and takes much from the communities of the first Christians. 'Retrieving the Human' explores this new-yet-old vision, examining questions of the new person and personhood: soul and body; humankind in relation to space and time; the person in relation to science, technology, and work; humanity before God. It is among the poor, particularly in the base communities, that Comblin looks for models of being truly human today.

Two verses about Moses in the Bible have been the subject of debate since the first century. In Exodus 33:20, God tells Moses that no one can see God and live, but Numbers 12:8 says that Moses sees the form of the Lord. How does one reconcile these two opposing statements? Did Moses see God, and who gets to decide? The Christian Moses investigates how ancient Christians from the New Testament to Augustine of Hippo resolved questions of who can see God, how one can see God, and what precisely one sees. Jaeda Calaway explains that the decision about whether and how Moses saw God was not a neutral exercise for an early Christian. Rather, it established the interpreter's authority to determine what was possible in divine-human relations and set the parameters for the nature of humanity. As a result, Calaway argues, interpretations of Moses' visions became a means for Jews and Christians to jockey for power, allowing them to justify particular social arrangements, relations, and identities, to assert the limits of humans in the face of divinity, and to create an Other. Seeing early Christians with new eyes, The Christian Moses reassesses how debates on Moses' visions from the first through the fifth centuries were, in reality, debates on the boundaries of humanity.

Despite the growing interest among philosophers and theologians in virtue ethics, its proponents have done little to suggest why Christians in particular find virtue ethics attractive. Joseph J. Kotva, Jr., addresses this question in The Christian Case for Virtue Ethics, showing that virtue theory offers an ethical framework that is highly compatible with Christian morality. Kotva defines virtue ethics and demonstrates its ability to voice Christian convictions about how to live the moral life. He evaluates virtue theory in light of systematic theology and Scripture, arguing that Christian ethics could be profitably linked with neo-Aristotelian virtue ethics. Ecumenical in tone, this book provides a thorough but accessible introduction to recent philosophical accounts of virtue and offers an original, explicitly Christian adaptation of these ideas. It will be of value to students and scholars of philosophy, theology, and religion, as well as to those interested in the debates surrounding virtue ethics.
