Item description for Reimagining the Human: Theological Anthropology in Response to Systemic Evil by Eleazar S. Fernandez...

Overview
"Eleazar Fernandez builds here hope-filled bridges among many theological strands, ethnic groups, denominations, religions, and the daily struggles of a wide variety of oppressed peoples across the globe. In doing so, he succeeds where many have hitherto failed, constructing a theological anthropology that really makes sense of the Christian hope amid, despite, and over against the reigning idols of our times-money, power, weapons, technology, whiteness, maleness, and the destruction of our environment. Hooray for this reimagining of the human!"

Publishers Description
Exploring theological anthropology, the doctrine of what it means to be human and to be created in God's image, Fernandez argues that our life in the image of God is damaged and frustrated by the systemic evils of society, particularly classism, racism, sexism, and naturism (destructive practices against the ecosystem). At the heart of these four evils are matters of faith and idolatry, idols that demand the sacrifice of our souls, bodies, time, and anything that we cherish most. In response, Fernandez constructs an alternative anthropology that is nonanthropocentric. He proposes an anthropology that seeks connections while respecting the integrity of the individual, that moves beyond patriarchy, and that makes possible the development of an integrated self. His alternative anthropology transgresses class privileges and restores the humanity of all; it is not "color-blind" nor indifferent to difference, but sees difference as a principle of interdependence and life.
