Theological comprehension of human being as image of God and anthropological models of Christian psychology

Abstract

The author of the article suggests and considers a number of promising directions of dealing with theological concept of human being as image of God in anthropological models of Christian psychology aimed at solving actual theoretical and practical problems and open to a fruitful dialog with the representatives of contemporary anthropological scientific communities. Six theological lines closely connected with the doctrine of the image of God in human being this article dealing with are the distinction between the image and likeness of God, the doctrine on the perfections of human nature reflecting the perfection of divine nature, psychological and social images of the Holy Trinity, the image of God in human being as the image of Christ, and the theological understanding of human person.
