:The third installment in a wide and deep constructive theology for our time
This third volume of Veli-Matti Karkkainen's ambitious five volume theology project develops a Christian theology of creation and humanity (theological anthropology) in dialogue with the Christian tradition, with contemporary theology in all its global and contextual diversity, and with other major living faiths -- Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
In constructing his theology of creation and humanity, Karkkainen uniquely engages the natural sciences, including physical, cosmological, and neuroscientific theories. He devotes particular attention to the topics of divine action in a world subjected to scientific study, environmental pollution, human flourishing, and the theological implications of evolutionary theory -- with regard to both cosmos and humanity.
Veli-Matti Karkkainen (D.Theol and DrTheol, Habil, University of Helsinki) is professor of systematic theology at Fuller Theological Seminary and also holds a teaching position at the University of Helsinki as Dozent of Ecumenics.
A prolific writer, Karkkinen has published 11 books in English (and seven in his native language, Finnish), most recently The Trinity: Global Perspectives (2007), One With God: Salvation as Deification and Justification (2004), and Trinity and Religious Pluralism: The Doctrine of the Trinity in Christian Theology of Religions (2004), Pneumatology: The Holy Spirit in Ecumenical, International, and Contextual Perspective and Christology: A Global Introduction. as well as more than 100 articles, which have appeared in international scholarly journals.
He is also the editor (with William Dyrness) of Global Dictionary of Theology (2008). He is a member of three working groups of the World Council of Churches and has participated in numerous international consultations. He is also an external examiner for Wales University.
