Theological Anthropology and the Great Literary Genres : Understanding the Human Story - Michael P. Jensen

The book will be launched online by Dr Xavier Lakshmanan

The SCD Annual Lecture opens up with Dr Jensen’s most recent research which explores what story – and in what kind of story – one is caught up: comedy or tragedy, to name but two examples. Christian theology maintains that we are caught up in gospel: the story of God’s self-communication to a lost world. In his lecture Dr Jensen presents the gospel not only as a great, indeed unique, literary genre but as an existential game-changer for the ages.

The lecture is accompanied by the launch of Michael’s new book, Theological Anthropologies and the Great Literary Genres: Understanding the Human Story (Lanham: Fortress, 2019). The book will be launched by Dr Xavier Lakshmanan, Lecturer in Theology at the Australian College of Christian Studies and author of a Peter Lang book on the theological thought of Ricoeur.
