  • This study explores the theological anthropologies of Maximus the Confessor and Jurgen Moltmann It argues that Maximus and Moltmann root their vision of the human calling in their trinitarian and christological reflection, in contrast to many modern theologies that tend to devise an account of human being first, and then try to find ways in which Christ and the Trinity arThis study explores the theological anthropologies of Maximus the Confessor and Jurgen Moltmann It argues that Maximus and Moltmann root their vision of the human calling in their trinitarian and christological reflection, in contrast to many modern theologies that tend to devise an account of human being first, and then try to find ways in which Christ and the Trinity are somehow relevant to this human being After introducing the argument, motivation, background, and scope of the study, as well as issues regarding method and sources in the preface and first chapter, chapter two considers the trinitarian matrix of the human calling or vocation, looking at the divine ideas tradition and trinitarian adumbrations in Maximus, and the perichoretic dimension within the Trinity and creation according to Moltmann Chapter three elucidates the christological basis of the human vocation, how Maximus grounds his vision for humanity s calling upon Chalcedonian christology, while Moltmann establishes his vision based on a Messianic postmodern christology Chapter four explores the redemptive goal of the human calling, focusing on the doctrine of theosis and particular means of deification in Maximus, and the theme of the sabbath rest of all creation in the panentheistic perspective of Moltmann Chapter five examines the trinitarian christocentric praxis of the human vocation It considers how Maximus articulates the human calling in terms of the human being as an ordered microcosm that is reintegrated through growth in virtue, and a universal mediator that participates in the reunification of creation with God This chapter also analyzes Moltmann s understanding of trinitarian christocentric praxis, in terms of a messianic fellowship of service for the kingdom of God, in which women and men fulfill the call to doxology, discipleship, and mission Chapter six, the conclusion, considers a few important implications of the study for theology today, demonstrating that the theological anthropologies of Maximus and Moltmann evince how reflection on Christ and the Trinity turns out to be far intrinsic and basic to theological reflection, and fruitful for theological construction, than some tendencies in modern theology might suggest.
