How has idolatry inverted the image of God? New podcast episode with Richard Lints

What does it mean to be made in the image of God? How was the image meant to function within the temple context of the garden of Eden? Why is Christ the true image of God and how does he image God in a way we do and do not? How does a biblical understanding of the image equip Christians to counter a secular outlook like Friedrich Nietzsche’s worldview?

In this new episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Richard Lints to discuss the Godward orientation and inversion of the image of God.

Richard Lints is the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor of Theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has received degrees from Westminster College (B.A), the University of Chicago (A.M.) and the Univerisity of Notre Dame (M.A. & Ph.D.). He is the author of The Fabric of Theology: A Prolegomenon to Evangelical TheologyRenewing the Evangelical Mission, and Identity and Idolatry: The Image of God and Its Inversion.
