Product Description

Is our essential humanity dictated by how our brains are wired? Or is our essence found in a non-material soul? Addressing neuroscientific developments, Green offers a biblical perspective on sin, free will, salvation, the afterlife, and other issues. His assertion that a dualistic view of the person is inconsistent with science and Scripture will provoke debate. 192 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

Are humans composed of a material body and an immaterial soul? This view is commonly held by Christians, yet it has been undermined by recent developments in neuroscience. Exploring what Scripture and theology teach about issues such as being in the divine image, the importance of community, sin, free will, salvation, and the afterlife, Joel Green argues that a dualistic view of the human person is inconsistent with both science and Scripture. This wide-ranging discussion is sure to provoke much thought and debate.

Bestselling books have explored the relationship between body, mind, and soul. Now Joel Green provides us with a biblical perspective on these issues.
