Theological Anthropology

What Does It Mean to Be Human?

The Center for Faith and Culture recently embarked on Being Human: Theology and Praxis, a 3-year project on topics of theological anthropology, funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. We want to work together to answer a simple but profound question: What does it mean to be human?

From the Academy to the Pew

What does it mean to be human? We’re working to answer this question from the academy to the pew.

The Academy

We’re advancing the conversation about theological anthropology via scholars like Dr. Joshua Swamidass and Jordan Steffaniak.

The Classroom

We’re educating our students about theological anthropology. In the Mentorship Program, students meet twice per month with special guests. Guest lectures and an annual conference bring together world-class scholars.

The Pew

The Christ and Culture website serves as the hub for videos, articles, and podcasts — helping us educate everyday believers about theological anthropology.

Dr. Ken Keathley

There is no doctrine more in need of careful consideration for our cultural moment than Anthropology. How we define humans and how we understand the human condition inform us in so many areas related to the Church’s mission—counseling, ethics and apologetics, just to name a few. Starting with Scripture as our final authority, we will engage with a broad arena of academic disciplines as we explore what it means to be imagers of God and how to live faithfully before God in his world.
