God's fellow workers : the understanding of the relationship between the human and the divine in Maximus Confessor and Martin Luther

Sammendrag

The question if the concept of cooperation is a relevant description of the relation between the human and the divine is here investigated through an interpretation of some key texts by Maximus Confessor and Martin Luther. Maximus consistently maintains the theocentricity of restored humanity, emphasizing that it is manifested by humans relinquishing what is incompatible with the divine. In a similar way Luther explores the notion of the Christian as united with Christ through faith, thus letting him retain a postive evaluation of the concept of cooperation as long as it is kept clear of any thought of merit. In this way, both Maximus and Luther insist on the theocentricity of regeneration while at the same time retaining a positive evaluation of the difference between the divine and the human founded on Chalcedonian Christology.
