What is Man? (Basics of the Faith)
BRF; Troxel, A. Craig
“P&R is to be commended for this series of booklets that are intentionally biblical and Reformed in content. They will enable Christians to better understand and appreciate the topics. 'Readability,' 'reliability,' and 'to the point' best describe each booklet.”See All

“A gem . . . It shows incisively who human beings are as God's image-bearers and our desperate plight as sinners, and then points us to the glorious deliverance God has provided in Christ. I commend it highly.”See All

"Who am I?" All people, from all walks of life, ask this question as they think about their purpose on earth. Here Troxel extends the scope to all of mankind, and addresses the question of what is man.
In two main sections, he addresses the key questions of "What does it mean to be made in God's image?" and "What does it mean for man to be fallen?" The question of who we are is crucial - because only when we understand this can we understand what Jesus came to do.
