Stonestreet: The Beautiful Biblical Vision of the Human Person
Written By David E. Smith   |   08.01.19

“All men are created equal” and “man is created in the image of God”—these two statements are arguably some of the most important concepts in American history and in Christianity, respectively. But what do they have to do with each other, and more importantly, what do they really mean?

John Stonestreet, President of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, addresses these questions and more in his lecture on the Imago Dei, delivered at the 2019 Illinois Family Institute Worldview Conference. Expounding on such themes as “what does it mean to be human?” and “how do we become good people?,” Stonestreet demonstrates how those questions inform our culture today, before answering them in an overview of the grand, sweeping narrative of Scripture and ending in the beautiful hope of our redemption in Jesus Christ.
