In His Image
Xulon Press, 2007 - 112 pages
The basic premise of this collection of studies is that God created man in His image with the intent that man reflect that image. God has always set a perfect example of a loving father for man to follow. Man, however, chose not to follow this example and rebelled. Through sin the image of God has become distorted, and what is reflected in most of man's personal relationships is a varying degree of that distortion. In this study of the history of biblical families, the distorted image these biblical characters passed on is examined. Of special interest are the choices they made and the consequences of those choices within their families. Each chapter concludes with a comparison of the image that man reflected to the example God has set. Personal application questions are designed to challenge one to consider the image they are reflecting in their families and personal relationships.
