Historical Christian Views of the Imago Dei

Andre Malraux, in an address before a U.N. conference in the '60s, sounded the keynote of his mature Nietzscheanism:  "That God is dead has been clear to me for some time.  The problem for us today in this old earth of Europe is whether or not Man is dead!"  The fact, of course, is that one's view of God and one's view of man hang together; and in this course Prof. Strimple examines such themes as man's origin and his nature as the image of God; man as body and man as spirit; the covenant of works made with Adam as the covenant head of the human race; man's fall--its results and its mysteries; man's sin (imputation, corruption, inability); and the nature and limits of man's freedom.
