's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: general-theology, orthodoxy, anthropology

I've been doing some writing on the subject of Christian Anthropology, but after reading John Behr's slim volume, I don't know that I'm up to the task.

I certainly can do no better than John Behr. "The glory of God is a living human being." This first quote alone, from St Irenaeus of Lyon, contains so much theology that one could spend a lifetime studying it. That simple sentence encompases everything we know and everything we cannot know about ourselves, our relationship with humanity, and the reciprocity between us and God.

But wait, there's more!
