Overview

In the course Theological Anthropology, Dr. Marc Cortez looks at the question, What does it mean to be human? Dr. Cortez begins by surveying how to go about studying the human person from a theological perspective. He reviews the history of Christian reflection on what it means to be human and then presses into a range of difficult concomitant issues. The course covers classic theological issues as well as relevant contemporary topics, as Dr. Cortez discusses being made in the image of God; the reality of sin; free will; the distinction between mind, body, and soul; gender; the role of women in ministry; sexuality; race; and culture.
