Overview

Theosis is the doctrine of believers being transformed into the likeness of God. This does not mean believers become gods in any sense, but rather their hearts, minds, and character are redefined. Theosis: Deification in Christian Theology contains biblical and historical-theological essays offering innovative approaches to the issue of theosis. The interconnections between the theology of deification and the doctrines of the Trinity, Christology, anthropology, protology, hamartiology, soteriology, and eschatology are made manifest in these fascinating new studies. It is aimed both at those who are already students of theosis and at those who are looking for an introductory text. It also contains a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography for those seeking further resources on theosis.

In the Logos editions, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Praise for Theosis: Deification in Christian Theology

If one were to seek a single volume constituting an up-to-date and learned coverage of the subject, this is the book.

J. Robert Wright, General Theological Seminary

An extraordinary collaboration of scholars examining the neglected theme of deification in the classic Christian tradition from its biblical roots through Irenaeus, Augustine, and Maximus, to contemporary reconstructions of Torrance and Soloviev.

Thomas C. Oden, general editor, Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture

Theosis is back, and it is here to stay—no longer as the focus solely of one stream of the Christian tradition, but as a fully biblical and ecumenical account of salvation. Vladimir Kharlamov, with his colleagues, offers us another volume of significant essays on theosis/deification in the Christian tradition, from the evangelists to contemporary Baptists. They add to the burgeoning literature on the central reality of Christian faith: transformative participation in the very life of the Triune God.

Michael J. Gorman, The Ecumenical Institute of Theology, St. Mary’s Seminary & University
