Recent developments in the biological sciences pose challenging questions to its theology and to the church's understanding of what it means to be human--that is, made in the image of God. These essays by pastors, scientists, and theologians establish a dialogue between science and faith. Study guides accompany each chapter, making this book a uniquely helpful resource for individuals and church groups.
