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.
