Product Description

What does it mean to be human? J. Gordon McConville explores this fundamental question through the lens of the Old Testament. Applying the theological concept of the "image of God," he shows how the Old Testament view of humanity as "earthed" and "embodied" provides a foundation for Christian reflection on ethics, economics, politics, and church life and practice.

Publisher's Description

A Biblical Perspective on What It Means to Be Human

This major work by a widely respected Old Testament scholar and theologian unpacks a biblical perspective on fundamental questions of what it means to be human. 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.
