About the Book

No question is more important than that asked by the title of this book. Why? Because the truth about the origin and nature of mankind determines our identity, both as a race and as individual human beings. “What is Man?” presents the big picture, looking in turn at Man’s place in the universe, in the animal kingdom, and in the Bible. Seeking to be fair, the book examines non-Christian viewpoints with care and courtesy before presenting the biblical world-view as the one that makes most sense of all the data. It is thus a serious book but one written for the intelligent lay-person with a light touch and a liberal dash of humor. Authored by a distinguished scientist, with chapter headings such as “The Cheshire cat cosmos”, “Death and taxes”, “Aristotle and the snowball”, “World-views at war” and “Adam and the apple”, this book has to be different! It is.

“This winsome new work by Professor Andrews provides a cogent answer to one of the most pressing questions of our day, “What is Man?” It demonstrates the utter failure of the worldview of Darwinian naturalism and why we must turn to an ancient source, the Bible, to find the ultimate answer. Based on solid scholarship, both scientific and theological, and robustly argued, I highly recommend it.” Michael A.G. Haykin, FRHistS, Professor of Church History, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY.
