Review by: Mina Roller on Aug. 17, 2013 :
Dr. Glenn Sunshine’s latest book, ‘The Image if God”, is compact but filled with knowledge and wisdom. This book helped me unpack the mystery of much talked about (but seldom explained) concept of what it is to be human as image bearer. I have always appreciated Dr. Sunshine’s books for his unique way of explaining topics in a concise manner; his perspectives are drawn from the scripture, history, and biblical worldview. In other words, the book is not only theologically sound but also offers the layers of history and practical applications, which are rare to come by in Christian books. The book contains 14 short chapters and each chapter ends with thought provoking questions for discussion. I am hoping to share this book with my small group in the future as a way of solidifying our understanding of biblical worldview.
