David Kelsey's two-volume masterwork, Eccentric Existence: A Theological Anthropology, has been recognized as a major achievement, the culmination of decades of probing theological thought about what it means to be a human being in relationship with God.

Ten distinguished scholars respond to and interact with Eccentric Existence in this book, celebrating both Kelsey and his landmark study with essays on theological anthropology as it relates to the Bible, Catholic tradition, theological education, and other subjects.
