Reviews

'Of God and Man is a compelling treatment of a complex and fascinating period in Church History. Steenberg offers a lucid and perceptive theological treatment of the way early Christian discussions of man as 'image' influenced and furthered the church's maturing articulation of the Trinity, a genuine theology of the Spirit, and a transforming vision of the human-divine relationship. Steenberg's study convincingly demonstrates that only as we perceive the importance of man as 'image' will we be able to fully appreciate the patristic theological enterprise as a whole. This is an important work for everyone wishing to come to grips with the way theology was conceived and articulated in the early Church.' Revd. Dr. Thomas G. Weinandy, O.F.M., Cap. Executive Director for the Secretariat for Doctrine, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 'This is a profound book, exploring as no other the fact that the Christian God has revealed himself uniquely as a human being. Theology and anthropology are indeed intrinsically related, and this work explores that relationship during the crucial early centuries of Christian reflection. As Matthew Steenberg clearly shows, this theological work resulted not only in affirmations about God, but also a deepened understanding of ourselves, our existence, being, and life. Through a series of sensitively drawn sketches of particular and particularly important figures, Steenberg offers us much food for thought, both historical and contemporary.' V. Rev. Dr. John Behr, Dean, St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, New York, U.S.A.
