The Identities of God and Man is the most basic explanation of Christianity since Martin Luther. We intuitively kw that being good, serving others and suffering for the faith do t create personal identity, worth or motives. The Identities of God and Man shows us God the Creator and Man his Image and demonstrates that personal meaning proceeds from these identities. D.C. Goodman illuminates the complete Christian system of thought without dependence upon a specific 'brand' of Christianity by relying entirely upon the Bible and his observations of mankind during 40 years of continuous reflection. Judeo Christianity is a system of thought from the mind of the Creator God. To understand this system, remove all your presuppositions about God and mankind and begin with his definition of us. Verify his definitions by observing mankind. Thankfully, D.C. Goodman has done this yeoman's work for us in the seminal work the Identities of God and Man. Perhaps the most compelling part of the Identities of God and Man is the reconnection of forgiveness to daily living that the early Christians enjoyed so thoroughly. D.C. Goodman calls this reconnection living in forgiveness. Using God's infinity as a reference, Goodman demonstrates that God's forgiveness in Christ liberates those that live in this state enabling them to demonstrate the renewed Image of God instead of attempting to placate or please God by their behavior. One does good to express the forgiven state instead of doing good to maintain a state of grace. The Identities of God and Man is written for the 'broken' people who have read countless books searching for purpose and meaning only to be disappointed. We believe The Identities of God and Man will t disappoint.
