Summary
J. Gordon McConville explores how a biblical view of humanity provides a foundation for Christian reflection on ethics, economics, politics, and church life and practice. The book shows that the Old Testament's view of humanity as "earthed" and "embodied" plays an essential part in a well-rounded Christian theology and spirituality, and applies the theological concept of the "image of God" to all areas of human existence
Summary
A leading Old Testament scholar unpacks a biblical perspective on fundamental questions of what it means to be human and the implications for Christian thinking and practice
