Any theological anthropology written today must necessarily be incomplete. This is because no one work can capture in its entirety the mystery of the human person. Thus theological anthropology must always be a work in progress. This is important to state up front when considering the question of how to write about the human person today. I am starting to think that philosophers who strive for describing diversity rather than static unity are correct. The stuff of human life is too complex and rich to capture in one neat vision.
