Abstract:

Many ideas which are basic in Semitic thought and essential to a proper understanding of the Bible are, unfortunately, alien to our way of thinking. The Biblical notion of the corporate personality is a fundamental theme in the Scriptures ... and this pioneering study of that basic idea is an important event for Biblical students and all who work toward the creation of a truly Catholic and Scriptural theology. This work carefully and clearly uncovers the meaning, nuances and implications of the concept of corporate personality as seen in the Bible. This enables us to move to a fuller appreciation of the involvement of the human race in Adam and original sin; and it richly elucidates our unity in the redeeming Christ. It is a key theological concept and offers a basis for insight into many revitalized themes in modern theology--sin and redemption; grace; the Church as the extension of Christ; Mary, the image of the Church.
