Body in St Maximus the Confessor by Adam G. Cooper

Book Description

Contemporary scholarship recognizes in Maximus the Confessor a theologian of towering intellectual importance. In this book Adam G. Cooper puts to him a question which from the origins of Christian thought has constituted an interpretative crux for catholic Christianity: what is the place of the material order and, specifically, of the human body, in God's creative, redemptive, and perfective economies? While the study builds upon the insights of other efforts in Maximian scholarship, it primarily presents an engagement with the full vista of Maximus's own writings, providing a unique contribution towards an intelligent apprehension of this erudite but often impenetrable theological mind.

Books By Author Adam G. Cooper

Naturally Human, Supernaturally God by Adam G. Cooper Naturally Human, Supernaturally God, Paperback (May 2014)

A title that seeks to open a small window upon an odd case of theological convergence between three of the most diverse yet important theologians of the pre-Conciliar period, each of whom played a vital role in the Second Vatican Council - Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange O P, Karl Rahner S J, and Henri de Lubac S J.

Life in the Flesh by Adam G. Cooper Life in the Flesh, Hardback (August 2008)

Life in the Flesh offers a new spiritual philosophy of the body, contrasting sources from the Christian tradition with contemporary voices in philosophy and theology. Cooper challenges the Gnostic impulse either to marginalize or else to worship the body and gives a critical perspective on perennial issues including pornography, feminism, sterility, and death.
