The nature of persons is a perennial topic of debate in philosophy, currently enjoying something of a revival. In this volume for the first time metaphysical debates about the nature of human persons are brought together with related debates in philosophy of religion and theology. Fifteen specially written essays explore idealist, dualist, and materialist views of persons, discuss specifically Christian conceptions of the value of embodiment, and address four central topics in philosophical theology: incarnation, resurrection, original sin, and the trinity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Pearsons: Human and Divine is well worth reading...Van Inwagen and Zimmerman have edited a timely book. * Benedikt Paul Goecke The Philosophical Quarterly *
The metaphysical questions posed in this book promise to keep us occupied for some time... there's much here that deserves close study. A number of the contributions are strikingly adventurous. * William R. Carter, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
This collection of essays...gives an excellent snapshot of contemporary analytic philosophy of religion...These papers are marked by considerable technical complexity. * William Mander, Faith and Reason *
