Clement Of Alexandria

Full Product Description

This book provides an examination of the patristic idea of 'perfection' in relation to Clement's project on the ethical, intellectual and spiritual development of a Christian.The book examines Clement's project which brings together ethical, intellectual and spiritual development of a Christian while highlighting the need to search for integrity in the life of faith and reason. Achievement of maturity/perfection as one of the central themes of Clement's philosophy and theology, has two main approaches. Lilla's (1971) position pointed to a philosophical context which marked Clement's thought, while Osborn studied adaptation of the Greek legacy into new Christian context. This study challenges Osborn's view (1957), while modifying Lilla's position. In addition it deals with elements of Clement's theology not dealt with by Lilla i.e. the role of Christian community in progress towards Christian perfection. This patristic idea of 'perfection' still has much to offer to a modern reader or student of theology, as it promotes a positive, holistic and optimistic vision of human being and his/her relationship with God.
