Theologians working in theological anthropology often claim that Jesus reveals what it means to be 'truly human,' but this often has little impact in their actual account of anthropology. ReSourcing Theological Anthropology addresses that lack by offering an account of why theological anthropology must begin with Christology.
Building off his earlier study on how key theologians in church history have understood the relationship between Christology and theological anthropology, Marc Cortez now offers this constructive proposal for a distinctly Christological anthropology. He first explores the relevant Christological/anthropological biblical passages, unpacks how they inform our understanding of theological anthropology, and discusses the theological issues raised. Then, drawing together the interpretive and theological judgments made in his biblical exploration, Cortez outlines eleven methodological principles for Christological anthropology. The final chapters demonstrate the significance of Christology for theological anthropology by applying this methodological framework to several pressing anthropological issues today, including gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and death and suffering.
