Product Description

In this short, clear volume, Bartel tackles the question, "What does it mean to be human?" Human beings are created by God and defined by relationships--both with God and with each other. As Christians, we believe that people are created by God. But what does it mean to be created by God? What is it that God has createad? Bartel encourages readers to think about what they are asking and what they hope to get from exploring the issues surrounding this age-old question. Even if we believe that we understand these concepts, how do they affect our day-to-day life as Christians? Commissioned by the Office of Theology and Worship of the Presbyterian Church (USA), this book provides a brief but complete approach to the Christian doctrine of humanity.
