In this enlightening and scholarly work, Hoekema reappraises anthropology in the light of Scripture and Christian tradition. His contention is that the image of God in humanity is not lost through sin but instead is perverted. . . . This book can be recommended as an important and timely contribution to theological anthropology. It is both historically informative and biblically based.
