About the Author

Lucy Peppiatt is the Principal of Westminster Theological Centre, UK, where she lectures in systematic theology and in spiritual formation. Her books include The Disciple (Cascade, 2012), Women and Worship at Corinth (Cascade, 2015), Unveiling Paul's Women (Cascade, 2018), and Rediscovering Scripture's Vision for Women (2019).


"This book not only introduces the traditional approaches to the imago Dei but also explores the latest debates accessibly. This is such a vast topic, and yet readers will move through the most important questions and responses with ease. Peppiatt's prose is also a joy to read!"

--Gabrielle Thomas, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

"Lucy Peppiatt conveys the profound truths of the Christian gospel in ways that are academically rigorous, consistently oriented to the life of discipleship, and admirably clear. . . . The result is an eminently readable account that introduces the reader to the historical debates and offers fresh contemporary insight."

--Murray Rae, University of Otago

"This is a relevant and compelling overview, rooted in biblical scholarship, church tradition, contextual studies, contemporary considerations, and personal insights. A must-read for church leaders--or anyone--interested in shaping contemporary mission and ministry in informed and effective ways."

--Kate Coleman, Founder and Codirector, Next Leadership

"In the quest to understand the imago Dei doctrine, one can find no better guide that Peppiatt's The Imago Dei. Peppiatt explains the major theological positions clearly and explores their ramifications for understanding the human body, other creatures, and the created world. . . . This slim volume holds a treasure of information and provides an invaluable resource for pastor, professor, and student alike."

--Lynn H. Cohick, Northern Seminary
