Our guest believes humans have become disillusioned with themselves, thinking they have no divine origin or relationship. In counterpoint, he presents a Christian biblical anthropology that is a systematic study in the doctrine of humanity, addressing contemporary questions of transgenderism, homosexuality, technology, and more. His vision is rooted in the concept of creation by and personal covenant with God. Listen and rediscover the joy of being human and made in the image of God.
