Description

This series attempts to explain what it means that human beings, male and female, are created by God in the image of God, in the light of contemporary scientific understanding of human persons, and in the light of contemporary culture generally. The listener will gain a clearer sense of what a biblical understanding of persons means in today's world, how such an understanding is under attack, and how it might be defended. Lectures include:

  • Thinking Biblically About Persons
  • The Role of Meaning in the Constitution of Personhood
  • The Place of Good and Evil in God's Creation
  • The Role and Limits of Freedom
  • The Ethical Implications of Biblical Teaching
