What can Christianity offer? It offers true anthropology, the transformation into true humanity, salvation by way of transformation. Adhering to the Christian faith entails becoming like Christ whom Ratzinger refers to here as the measure of humanity, true man. Hence, his theology unifies with his anthropology. Anthropology and theology are unified. The old Adam, the body of humanity, transforms into the Last Adam, the body of Christ. Ratzinger thus offers the intersection of theology, Christology and anthropology and thus, from a soteriological point of view: hominization is deification.
