Being human - our identity - is arguably one of the key theologial issues of our era. The Bible's answer is that we are created, fallen, redeemed and, one day, we will be restored. The answer has vast implications, from debates around the beginning and ending of life to understanding human sexuality, from self-esteem and mental health through to how we raise our children. This book is a highly accessible and readable contribution to a growing recovery of our doctrine of man. Mallard as a pastor understands that we need to be biblically relevant in our thinking, and so guides the reader through Paul's letter to the Ephesians with the lens of human identity in a way that is truth-filled, devotional and grounded both in Scripture and in life. Paul writes with the gentleness of one who has known suffering. He includes quotes from others that bring the reader into community. He lets Scripture invite and shape us. Who am I and do I really matter? This is a heartfelt cry today, articulated in different ways, often even among professing Christians. Paul Mallard shows us what the Bible teaches us about our identity as human beings and, more specifically, as Christians. We look at our relationship with God, with the church, with our family and in the workplace. The starting point is the NT book of Ephesians, which is far more relevant than we might think. The author brings us right into the heart of his family, explaining how Abe, his young grandson, in spite of severe disability from birth, was made by a loving and kind Creator, with unique value and immeasurable dignity. In fact, our dignity as humans stems from the fact that God has created us in his image - how amazing is that! This is a book which will orientate and reassure us, offering genuine confidence, but it will also move our hearts to praise God for investing such value in human beings like us. The book is in four parts: Part 1 - I am what God has made me; Part 2 - I am part of a new community; Part 3 - I am a stranger and a pilgrim here, and Part 4 -I am shaped by what I pray for. There are 3 chapters in each part except the last, which has 2 chapters. There is also an Epilogue, notes and further reading. In 177pp.
