The relation of man to God has to be at the centre of a theological account of humanity. One way of attacking this immediately is through the doctrine of creation: The human being as creature. And yet autonomy is a defining axiom of modern culture.


^^Dr MacFadyen advances a new understanding of dependence and relation to God as 'more than necessary' and that on which autonomy and integrity rest. This is one of the paradoxes of religious belief. The author introduces categories of abundance in relation to human life: Human life is made for joy in God. But in doing so MacFadyen wishes to safeguard against the modern over emphasis on body/soul and the accompanying denigration of the body. Instead the author celebrates the body in an integrated and holistic account. This will naturally include a discussion of sex.


^^ This book on the theology of humanity is key to our understanding of where theology may be heading in the new century.^

This book on the theology of humanity is key to our understanding of where theology may be heading in the new century. Dr. MacFadyean advances a new understanding of dependence and relation to God as "more than necessary" and that on which autonomy and integrity rest. Here is a wide-ranging search into the paradox of freedom and embodied life, including how we define humanity and our assumptions concerning what is normal and abnormal, what is human and non-human.
