"The Image of God in an Image Driven Age" review by Mike Robinson
|The Image of God in an Image Driven Age review|
God word says in Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Images can help form our worldview, whether Christian or non-Christian. The world and the internet are flooded with images, many evil and some virtuous. Scripture teaches that men have been created in the image of God, yet the Adamic rebellion against God resulted in some robust pollution upon the imprint of God's image. The truth of the gospel is that Jesus, as the perfect image of God, reestablishes that godly image in all His people.
"The Image of God in an Image Driven Age" explores the mystery and blessings of the Image of the divine in humanity. Within this slightly academic text are many diverse chapters touching on theology and worldview issues. This collection comes from the Wheaton Theology Conference and has essay from Phillip Jenkins, Daniela C. Augustine, Beth Felker Jones, Craig L. Blomberg, William A. Dyrness, Timothy R. Gaines and Shawna Songer Gaines, , , Christina Bieber Lake, Catherine McDowell, Ian A. McFarland, Matthew J. Milliner, and others.Colossians 1:15 Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.I enjoyed it and recommend this for pastors and well-ready lay-people.
