Life in the Flesh by Adam G. Cooper

Book Description

Christianity is deeply interested in the body. In its central mysteries - creation, incarnation, and resurrection - the body and human flesh are radically implicated. Bodies are persons, and persons are spiritual beings, bearers of the divine image and destined for bodily union with God. From the Bible to the Second Vatican Council, from Irenaeus and Tertullian to Aquinas and Luther, the classic sources of the Christian tradition engender a spiritual philosophy that challenges the ever-present gnostic impulse either to marginalize, or else to worship, the body. Adam G. Cooper brings these rich sources into conversation with numerous contemporary voices in philosophy and theology, offering an illuminating and critical perspective on such pressing social and ethical questions as pornography, feminism, philosophy of mind, sterility, and death.

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.

Body in St Maximus the Confessor by Adam G. Cooper Body in St Maximus the Confessor, Hardback (February 2005)

What happens to the body when it is deified? This book puts this question to St Maximus, the Confessor, the world's greatest master on the subject of deification. At the heart of Maximus's answer stands the transfigured body of Christ, the incarnate Word of God. In him, all creation is joined to God.
