The question: What is Man? which arose centuries ago in the Psalms remains one of the most vital issues faced by present-day man.
Bewildered by technological advance, alienated from the convictions and lifestyle of his forefathers, modern man has lost his place in the universe. The echoes of his bewilderment can be heard everywhere, from the city graffiti to the rock songs, subcultures and new religions of our time.
Yet there is an answer to man's identity crisis. Man is made by God, in his image, for his glory. This truth with all its implications, is the theme of J. Gresham Machen's popular presentation of The Christian View of Man. It explains, for Christians and non-Christians alike, how the Bible serves as a mirror to show us who we are. In simple yet careful language, Machen deals with such subjects as creation, man as the image of God, the fall, sin, God's providence and care, and God's restoring grace.

Review 2 for The Christian View of Man
Date:July 25, 2003
For a Christian who is looking for a clear, concise, and practical approach to key doctrines and Christian beliefs, this book is a must! J.Gresham Machen, founder of Westminster Theological Seminary, has the wonderful ability to make difficult concepts, incredibly simple to understand. Covering a wide range of topics in 20 relatively short chapters, Machen brings enlightenment to clouded minds, and hope to weary souls. Machen's Christ centered teaching is beautifully evidenced in his chapter on the majesty of God's law, "He will convict men of sin; He will break down men's pride; He will melt their stony hearts. Then He will lead them to the Saviour of their souls."
