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 "e;earthed"e; and "e;embodied"e; plays an essential part in a well-rounded Christian theology and spirituality, and applies the theological concept of the "e;image of God"e; to all areas of human existence.
