The Call to Personhood: A Christian Theory of the Individual in Social Relationships

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Oct 26, 1990 - Religion - 327 pages
"What is a person?" Although the answer is given in largely theoretical terms, the primary concern of this book is to identify the personal, social and political practices required to live as a human in community with others. Christian trinitarian theology is accordingly interwoven with contemporary social thought to provide an account of individuality and of the various dimensions of personal existence (the psychological, the interpersonal, the material, the institutional, the political, the spiritual) in terms of communication. The basic theme of this book is that we become the people we are as our identities are shaped through the patterns of relation, communication and exchange that surround and incorporate us.
