Product Description

Review

What stands out in this fantastic introductory volume to theological anthropology is the myriad of voices that Ross effectively encompasses in her narrative, including Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, Lonergan, Rahner, Schillebeeckx, and David Tracy. [This book] is highly recommended as an introductory volume to theological anthropology, and appropriate as source material for an undergraduate course regarding anthropology or moral theology. It is well-written, concise, and adequately sourced.
Robert P. Russo, Lourdes University


Professor Ross deftly weaves wisdom from classical Christian sources together with insights from contemporary thinkers to form a tapestry that inspires us to think courageously about what it means to be a human being today. Her commitment to the values of truth and justice is evident throughout, and so are her wide-ranging knowledge, her profound Catholic faith, her esteem for science and the arts, and her engaging style of presentation. This is a splendid text, designed to appeal to a wide range of readers!
Anne E. Patrick, William H. Laird Professor of Religion and the Liberal Arts, emerita, Carleton College


Embracing challenges that emerge from modern and postmodern culture, gender studies, the natural and human sciences, studies of trauma and violence, and technology, Ross remains convinced that the Christian tradition has wisdom to offer to all those who continue to ponder the meaning of being human. With clarity and grace, she offers a splendid overview of theological anthropology and its contemporary challenges. Anthropology: Seeking Light and Beauty is an invitation to join in a lively conversation about the future of humankind in relation to God and to all of creation.
Mary Catherine Hilkert, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame

What it means to be a human 14 July 2012
By Joel Holtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is another excellent title from Liturgical Press, focusing on what it means to be a human being from a Catholic perspective. The author includes various viewpoints, some more interesting than others, including medieval writers, but the best part of the book for me is the section on evil.

Chapter 6, THE HUMAN CAPACITY FOR EVIL AND THE HOPE FOR SALVATION is simply outstanding. What I appreciated maybe most about the chapter is how Ross encourages all Christ followers to not just come up with easy answers on the subject of evil, and more importantly, to remember that each person created in the image of God has the capacity to receive God's mercy.

Some parts of the book are hard to follow, but the wait is well worth it to see the book to the end. Another excellent resource from Liturgical Press.
