Item description for What It Means to Be Human: Living with Others before God (Foundations of Christian Faith) by Michelle J. Bartel & Charles Wiley...
Overview 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 created? 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.
The book is a clear treatment, in nontechnical language, of the Christian doctrine of anthropology. It describes human beings as created by God and defined by relationships--with God and others.
The Foundations of Christian Faith series enables readers to learn about contemporary theology in ways that are clear, enjoyable, and meaningful. It examines the doctrines of the Christian faith and stimulates readers not only to think more deeply about their faith but also to understand their faith in relationship to contemporary challenges and questions. Individuals and study groups alike will find these guides invaluable in their search for depth and integrity in their Christian faith.
