Theologians working in theological anthropology often claim that Jesus reveals what it means to be "truly human," but this often has little impact in their actual account of anthropology.

ReSourcing Theological Anthropology addresses that lack by offering an account of why theological anthropology must begin with Christology. Building off his earlier study on how key theologians in church history have understood the relationship between Christology and theological anthropology, Cortez now develops a new proposal for theological anthropology and applies it to the theological situation today.ReSourcing Theological Anthropology is divided into four sections. The first section explores the relevant Christological/anthropological biblical passages and unpacks how they inform our understanding of theological anthropology. The second section discusses the theological issues raised in the course of surveying the biblical texts. The third section lays out a methodological framework for how to construct a uniquely Christological anthropology.

    Strong book by Cortez. His writing is engaging and easy to read. The strength is in making complex ideas understandable and approachable. Marc’s humor is an added bonus. Theology should be written this way. Cortez dealt with difficult anthropological issues, but he writes with humility and a self-deprecating humor that never alienated the reader. Jesus Christ should be the starting point in any theological anthropology. Cortez lays a good foundation in the opening chapters and then applies it to significant issues like race , gender, and death. The only drawback is that it raises more questions than it answers. But Marc told us that would happen at the outset.
