-Publisher

What does it mean to be a person? What are the essential features of personhood revealed by Scripture and explicated in Christian doctrine? And -- perhaps most crucial to our modern times -- how does the religious view of personhood align with the views of contemporary philosophy, science, and the arts? This volume seeks to answer these questions in ways that will particularly enrich and enliven the witness of the church.^The fruit of extensive conversations between sixty pastor-theologians from across the United States -- many of whom are contributors to the volume -- "Persons in Community" highlights the basic insights from the ecumenical Christian tradition that still provide guidance and inspiration in the human quest for personal integrity, justice, peace, and freedom today. The authors first examine anew the concept of people as Godbs image-bearers from biblical, doctrinal, and cultural perspectives. They then develop a fresh portrait of people as Godbs faithful and prudent managers, created to live,in loving community.^Contributors: Byron C. Bangert^Joseph A. Bassett^John Christopherson^Deborah Rahn Clemens^Richard R. Crocker^F. Harry Daniel^Pamela Fickenscher^Richard L. Floyd^Sonja Hagander^David Henderson^Scott Hoezee^Albert H. Keller^J. Harold McKeithen Jr. ^Allen C. McSween Jr. ^David Miles^W. Rush Otey^Robert S. Rice^John B. Rogers Jr. ^John Rollefson^J. Barry Vaughn
