  1. Good selection of books and subject. There is so much to say about the image of God and its practical application. I look forward to reading about your findings.


    1. Gabriel. Thanks for the comment. I may reach out to you for some help with the Hebrew. Reading through W. Randall Garr, In His Own Image and Likeness and I’m finding it a bit challenging.

      Have you read any books on the imago dei that you’d recommend?

      grace and peace


      1. You’re welcome, Will! I’m also starting to dig on this subject. One of my academic advisors recommended me some books. I haven’t read them yet, but I think they may help you.

        1. The Imagio Dei as Human Identity: A Theological Interpretation by Ryan S. Peterson.

        2. The Ashgate Research Companion to Theological Anthropology by Joshua R. Farris and Charles Taliaferro.

        3. Christological Anthropology in Historical Perspective: Ancient and Contemporary Approaches by Marc Cortez.

        Also, there’s a new book that will be release on August 20, 2019: An introduction to Theological Anthropology: Humans, Both Creaturely and Divine by Joshua R. Farris. I’d also recommend you this one.

        Please, let me know how I can be of any help with Hebrew.


      2. Thank you. I have Peterson on my bibliography, but haven’t heard of Marc Cortez or Josh Farris. Thanks! I’m still reading through John Kilner’s Dignity and Destiny and I’ve found George Hammond’s It Has Not Yet Appeared what We Shall Be helpful.


  2. Will, the third book I gave you is not the one I meant to put on the list. Instead of that one, read “ReSourcing Theological Anthropology: A Constructive Account of Humanity in the Light of Christ” also by Marc Cortez. This is the one I originally wanted to recommend you.
