Made in the Image of God: Understanding the Nature of God and Mankind in a Changing World by Reid A. Ashbaucher is a powerful book that combines religion and scripture, science and philosophy to redefine the
concept of man in an age of secularism and relativism. Who is God? What is God? How is God related to man? But ultimately, what is man in relation to his creator? This book offers powerful insights into the greatness of the human person, a powerful reflection on the Biblical phrase that appears in the first book of Christian scriptures, the myth of the Genesis: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Gen, 1:27). But before creating man, God said: “Let us make man in our own image,” and this already indicates the community spirit of God.
Over time, man has ceased to be mysterious, to be adorned with the sense of sacredness, because he has been touched, experimented, and explored scientifically in many ways. However, the ontological truth about the human being is that he originates from God, he is a reflection of His maker. But what does this imply? In Made in the Image of God: Understanding the Nature of God and Mankind in a Changing World, Reid A. Ashbaucher discovers the face of God for readers, and develops a Christo-centric philosophy that defines life as a return to the very source, to the life of the Trinity, to a God who refers to Himself as “We.” This book is an eye-opener that will help readers better understand where they come from. It’s a powerful tool that unveils the beautiful face of God.
