The End of God-Talk

Anthony B. Pinn

Oxford University Press

Rather than a sense of the human as imago Dei, this chapter discusses the nature and meaning of the human (theological anthropology) through strict attention to physical bodies and scientific findings. It argues that humans are fragile subjects, moving through the world without a full sense of themselves and with an unfolding but earthy sense of purpose, but also without the stain of original sin. The human is fully and always historically bound and is best understood through status as embodied being.

Keywords:   theological anthropology, humanity, embodied beings, human purpose
