In this comprehensive study, renowned theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg examines the anthropological disciplines—human biology, psychology, cultural anthropology, sociology and history—for their religious implications. The result is a theological anthropology that does not derive from dogma or prejudice, but critically evaluates the findings of the disciplines.
Pannenberg begins with a consideration of human beings as part of nature; moves on to focus on the human person; and then considers the social world: its culture, history and institutions. All the elements of this multi-faceted study unite in the final chapter on the relation of human beings to their history.
