Sex, Race, and Culture: Constructing Theological Anthropology for the Twenty-First Century

Pre-Vatican II theological anthropology focused attention on the exercise of human
freedom as embodied in time and oriented to community. Post-Vatican II theology has
deepened this trajectory by reflecting on the specific conditions and experiences of
human embodiment, as well as the cultural and historical contexts that ground efforts
to realize the ideal of persons-in-community. This article explores the contributions
of theological anthropologies that take seriously gender, race, history, and culture
in theology, and argues for further contemporary, enculturated, and embodied
reflections on sin and grace.
