This book examines the theology of finitude, failure, and sin and reflects on the world and humanity: their promise, precariousness, and their potential for sinful degeneracy. Having heard and heeded the Word of God, Christian Tradition holds that all of Creation is suspended between God and nothingness, and that it is humanity's privilege and responsibility to be aware of this and to live by that awareness. Made in God's image, we are drawn to God; yet we live uncertainly, on the edge of nonexistence. Our identity is rooted in God, yet worldly pressures are constantly upon us, surrounding us, and even surprising us from within. Thus, human life turns out to be a daunting venture; in order to become what we most deeply are we must accept what we are not: a body both firm with promise and weak with failure. Instead of championing human life, we find ourselves tested and tempted; naturally prone to frustration, degeneracy, death, and sin. While this opens us to failure to live up to the greatness that is inherently ours, Father van Beeck urges us to accept the ever-present invitation to grow to the full measure of our God-given humanity. In exploring these dramatic themes, this volume lays the foundation for the theology of sin to be offered in the next volume.
