"This is an outstanding read and I heartily recommend it to you.
Rather than treating various aspects of human nature as so many
other theological anthropologies do (body, soul, spirit, mind,
emotions, will, et al.), this is a thorough treatment of human
identity from the angles of systematic and biblical theology. It's
about who we are versus what we are."--Paul D. Adams, In Christ
Jesus, November 29, 2015
"I am grateful that Lints wrote this book, and I commend it to others for a better understanding of this significant issue of the image of God and idolatry. The rich themes of the book have significant practical implications for Christians."--G. K. Beale, Themelios, April 2016
