Third Revised Edition
Made in the Image of God is a book that provides key concepts for understanding the nature and personhood of God and mankind, while providing deeper insights into how we as human beings relate to God physically, emotionally and spiritually in a metaphysical way, both now and in the future.
Within this study, there are discussions on such topics as The Nature of God, The Nature of Mankind, The Trinity, and Jesus Christ as God and Man, while providing concepts that will help open the door to understanding God’s revelation concerning himself, as revealed through the Scriptures. One reader commented: “After fifty years of being a Christian and doing lots of Bible study, this book gave me the clearest understanding of the Trinity and their interaction with me.”
Made in the Image of God is good resource material for supplementing studies in Bible, Theology, Apologetics, Anthropology, Metaphysics or Philosophy of Religion.
You may ask, “What is this book about and what will be discussed”? Those are fair questions. Have you ever wondered who God is? How he could be all that he claims to be, such as all-powerful, all-knowing and invisible, yet exists in the person of Jesus Christ? How about God, indwelling believers, yet talks about heaven as his home—does any of this make sense to you? How is it that God is one, yet is represented as three persons? Moreover, what does Scripture really mean when it states that we are made in the image of God?
Within these pages, it is not my intent to document the world’s great philosophers and their views on the subject of metaphysics, for that will be left for another book. Yet we cannot ignore the subject. Consequently, we shall cover, in brief, some background and context on the concept of metaphysics as it relates to our practical and theological discussion on the nature of things. Within all this, it is my desire to present this discussion to anyone with an interest in having a deeper knowledge of God the creator, and for those that have studied the Scriptures, but may have never pursued a degree in religion, Bible or theology. Ultimately, this discussion is for those who have sought to live their lives in the everyday world with God in mind and who would like a deeper understanding of God through scriptural study and contemplation of the God who created all things. To these and anyone else with interest, I would like to introduce the God of the Holy Scriptures—the Bible, in terms never thought of before, ultimately in hopes to aid our understanding to the concept of who God is, and how we, as his created beings, relate to him physically, emotionally, and spiritually—answering the ultimate questions: how we are alike and different with respect to the God of this universe, as he has designed it to be.
