The anthropology of faith following Romans 1-3

View Full Record
Description: In this thesis, The Anthropology of Faith following Romans 1-3, I set out to explore the concept of faith in the Christian tradition from an anthropological perspective. An introduction offers a brief historical overview leading to the difficulties which understanding faith poses to the contemporary interpreter. Beginning with the New Testament, especially Romans and Hebrews, and then continuing into the Christian theological tradition from Thomas Aquinas to Karl Rahner, I examine and compare selected interpretations from this history of faith in light of the traditional distinction between fides quae creditur and fides qua creditur. In the conclusion these understandings will be brought together to explicate the meaning of faith in a grammar of human existence.
