Reviews

This book is a deep well issuing forth a fountain of biblical insight about what it means to be a human being created in the image of God. Drink deeply from this wonderful book.

--Denny Burk

This book supplies a doctrine of mankind that is derived from God's Word, that is both Christological and covenantal, and that celebrates that our chief end is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. 'Reenchanting Humanity' is a gift to the church in the twenty-first century.

--Jason S. DeRouchie

Strachan uses the Bible as a magnifying lens and looks at mankind in the context of this anthropocentric, narcissistic, sin-ridden, self-sufficient, self-defined, and high-tech generation and has given us, not only his analysis of the problem, but also its cause and its cure. I love the way the author begins with the image of God and ends with Christ, as the God-man who reenchants our humanity. This is a must-read.

--Miguel Nuรฑez

This book is filled with rich, scripturally grounded insight that will give every reader an increased appreciation for the great honor and significance of existing as a human being made in the image of God.

--Wayne Grudem

If you want to know who you are in light of Scripture, and learn how to speak good news to our poor lost world, this book is must reading. From Scripture and faithful theological reasoning, Strachan carefully and wisely answers some of the most significant questions of our day. In this book we have the antidote to the diseased thinking of our day: a sound theological and Christocentric anthropology.

--Steve Wellum

There is a desperate need for Christians to have a clear, comprehensive, biblically grounded, God-centered, definition of humanity, and for that definition to transform the way we live, love, and minister. Owen Strachan has wonderfully met this need in 'Reenchanting Humanity'. I hope that this important book has the deep and wide influence it deserves!

--Erik Thoennes

In this 'humble attempt to see humanity afresh through biblical eyes, ' Owen Strachan asks, and brilliantly answers, questions such as 'Does the human person live in an ordered cosmos and have an appointed identity, or does he make his own identity in a world without God?' Reenchanting Humanity could not be more timely. In this Christological anthropology, Strachan offers a holistic vision of humanity for our disenchanted age. Who says anthropology has to be boring?

--Andreas Kรถstenberger

Not only is Strachan enjoyable to read, but I find that he helps me communicate traditional systematic assertions in arresting and memorable ways. I commend this volume to scholars, seminarians, and pastors as we seek to reflect faithfully on and teach clearly about all that God says in the Scriptures about man.
