Review: "This powerful manifesto sets forth a dynamic and robust vision of human life beyond the divisions that haunt the humanities, social sciences, theology, and religious studies. The authors outline a vision called theological humanism, based on the idea that neither God's will nor human flourishing alone provides an adequate measure and orientation for human life. The task of human life is responsibility for the integrity of life, the measure of human action. Yet more than that, the idea of theological humanism articulates a profound and ancient insight too often lost in the current debate between theologians and humanists - that human beings are mixed creatures striving for wholeness and integrity."--BOOK JACKET.
