Through the ages, mankind has longed to understand and explain our origin. The Bible tells us we were created in the image and likeness of God and that God formed our body from the dust of the ground. But exactly how were we made? What was our form like? How did this body differ from Jesus when he took on human flesh? How do we rightly address the relationship between Creation and incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and re-creation?
In Made for Glory, award-winning author Joshua A. McClure combines testimony and biblical inquiry to unlock mysteries that have great implications for our lives today. His flair for graphic, powerful biblical study removes blinders and opens the way for deep reflection on past assumptions and misinformation about the purposes of God for his created beings. A must-read for anyone pursuing the truth of who you are and what it means to be made in God’s glorious image.
