The Image and Likeness in God of Bernard of Clairvaux's Free Choice and Grace: Reflections Both Philosophical and Theological

The Image and Likeness in God of Bernard of Clairvaux's Free Choice and Grace: Reflections Both Philosophical and Theological Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We are made in the image and likeness of God. Bernard of Clairvaux, the versatile troubadour of Christian love, is no naive romantic. He understands that a series of moral changes must precede any exercise of this love. For him, the seat of love is the faculty of the human will (the Image). On the other hand, the uninhibited action of free choice (the Likeness) constitutes the perfection of the faculty. The Image, because of sin and consequent misery, has lost its Likeness to God. Only divine intervention, through the efficacy of grace, can restore Likeness and cleanse the blemished Image. The text is not a polemic, but rather and apologia rooted in Bernard''s personal experience. The ardour of love springs from a flourishing freedom, the direct result of a double cause: divine grace and the restored union of Image and Likeness. Without free choice there is nothing to be saved; while without grace there is no salvation.

Synopsis:

Image and likeness, grace and freesubjects that have generated theological inquiry and debate for centuries. Writing in the early twelfth century, Bernard taught that the human faculty of will constitutes the Image, and the uninhibited action of free choice the Likeness.
