    In his new book, Embodiment and Virtue in Gregory of Nyssa, Boersma writes that “he wanted to test my hunch that the pre-modern Platonist-Christian synthesis does not require us to abandon the goodness of matter.” In an extensive investigation of Gregory’s views on gender, marriage, exegesis, death, virtue and the church, he concludes.

The Body and Desire sets out to retrieve the full range of Gregory’s thinking on the challenges of the ascetic life by examining within the context of his theological commitments his evolving attitudes on what we now.
