Doctrine of Man (TH221) provides an introduction to the fascinating and vast topic of the doctrine of man, from a Reformed position. The course introduces several theological methods, striking a balance between biblical and doctrinal considerations. Using a close reading of Gen 1–2, it examines what it means to be an image-bearer in our everyday life and work—created in God’s likeness and oriented toward God’s glory. The course also describes sin’s impact on our image-bearing work. It also provides a broad understanding of the doctrines of creation, revelation, and sin.

Logos Mobile Education is a highly effective cross-platform learning environment that integrates world class teaching with the powerful study tools and theological libraries available in Logos Bible Software. Every course provides links to additional resources and suggested readings that supplement the lecture material at the end of every transcript segment.
This course was produced with screencast videos. These videos provide tutorials showing you how to use Logos Bible Software in ways that are tied directly into the content of the course.
