Last year, in the Christian Scholar’s Review, I published a review essay looking at Christian Smith’s What is a Person? alongside David Kelsey’s Eccentric Existence. This was commissioned as an opportunity to compare and contrast discussions in the social sciences regarding the nature of the human person with a robust theological anthropology. I’ve uploaded a pdf of the essay on Scribd and am happy to share it here.
This generated a response from Christian Smith, to which I replied, in a later issue of Christian Scholar’s Review. I’ll post that exchange in a couple of days.
