ON THE HUMAN CONDITION

Author: ST. BASIL THE GREAT TRANSLATED BY NONNA VERNA HARRISON #: 8038
This informative and enjoyable little book serves as a valuable introduction to early Christian teaching on the human person. St. Basil, the great fourth century Archbishop of Caesarea, reflects on the image of God in humanity, the fall, and the origin of evil. A balance is struck between humility grounded in our creation from the earth and confidence based on the dignity of being created according to God`s image. There are succinct discussion on the functions of the human mind, the emotion of anger and the communal dimension of human identity: humans are naturally interrelated, social and interdependent.
