The Theological Anthropology of David Kelsey: Responses to ‘Eccentric Existence’

Edited by Gene Outka, professor emeritus of divinity and of religious studies

(Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.)

David Kelsey’s two-volume study, “Eccentric Existence: A Theological Anthropology,” has been recognized as a major achievement, the culmination of decades of theological thought about what it means to be a human being in relationship with God.

In this book, 10 renowned scholars respond to and interact with “Eccentric Existence,” celebrating both Kelsey and his landmark study with essays on theological anthropology as it relates to the Bible, Catholic tradition, theological education, and other subjects.
