Created in God's Image
Hoekema, Anthony A.
"In this enlightening and scholarly work, Hoekema reappraises anthropology in the light of Scripture and Christian tradition. His contention is that the image of God in humanity is not lost through sin but instead is perverted.... This book can be recommended as an important and timely contribution to theological anthropology. It is both historically informative and biblically based."See All
According to Scripture, humankind was created in the image of God. Hoekema discusses the implications of this theme, devoting several chapters to the biblical teaching on God's image, the teaching of philosophers and theologians through the ages, and his own theological analysis. Suitable for seminary-level anthropology courses, yet accessible to educated laypeople. Extensive bibliography, fully indexed.
