What does it mean to be human? How does a right understanding of personhood affect decisions on critical life situations? What implications does a biblical perspective on personhood have for the pastoral ministry of healing and hope? In answering these questions, Ray S. Anderson focused on the person as determined by and sustained by the creative power of God. He explored the the implications of a biblical understanding of personhood for such critical issues as human sexuality, family relationships, abortion, and death. He broke new ground in relating pastoral care and counseling to contemporary issues which challenge Christians and their understanding of the meaning of human life.

"A landmark in theological anthropology, with far-reaching implications for pastoral care."
"Biblically grounded, sparkling with fresh insights, this is the most perceptive and incisive work on theological anthropology to appear for a long time. No student, no pastor, no theologian, no Christian psychiatrist should be without theis book, for it will open up for themhitherto unprobed depths and offer them ways of grasping more profoundly what it really means to be a human being."
