s condemnation of certain propositions from his works. Become Like the Angels explores Origen's legacy and, in particular, his teachings about the origin, nature, and destiny of the human person. By way of a historical critical approach, Benjamin P. Blosser discusses the influence of Middle Platonic philosophy on the human soul and then compares it with Origen's teaching.This study finds that, while Origen was highly aware of Middle Platonic speculations on the soul and does borrow extensively from their vocabulary, he never accepts their underlying, philosophical assumptions and is in fact subtly critical of Middle Platonic theories of the soul. His anthropology remains from first to last a biblical, Christian, and even mystical one, the fruit of a remarkable effort to synthesize faith and reason in the ancient Church.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Benjamin P. Blosser is associate professor of theology at Benedictine College where he teaches courses in church history, ecclesiology, and New Testament studies. He received his Ph.D. in historical theology from the Catholic University of America.PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:"An ambitious and very well-researched book on the way in which Origen deals with a fundamental issue in ancient philosophy―the position, state, and function of the soul in a living being. It is a topic at the core of all anthropological and cosmological thinking in Late Antiquity. In elegant, lucid prose, Blosser takes the reader gently through the minefield of previous scholarship and presents a very clear and skillful exposition of Origen as religious philosopher."―John A. McGuckin, Professor of Byzantine Church History, Columbia University, and editor of The Westminster Handbook to Origen of Alexandria"Origen is a demanding synthesizer of classical learning and Christian faith. Blosser skillfully negotiates many of the consequent dilemmas, leading the reader to a greater appreciation of Origen as both a faithful theologian and creative philosopher in his own right. Moreover, Become Like the Angels is thoroughly researched, carefully reasoned, and elegantly written - a welcome contribution to the field." ―Catholic Historical Review
