In a culture in which science is believed to hold the answers to every question, spiritual realities like the soul are often ignored or ridiculed.  We are told that neuroscience holds the key to explaining every aspect of human behavior.  Yet Christian philosopher J. P. Moreland argues that Scripture, sound philosophical reasoning, and everyday experience all point to the reality of an immaterial soul.  Countering the arguments of both naturalists and Christian scholars who embrace a material-only view of humanity, Moreland demonstrates why it is both biblical and reasonable to believe humans are essentially spiritual beings.  He also describes the various components of the soul and how Christians can nurture their souls as disciples of Christ.  Moreland shows that neuroscience and the soul are not competing explanations of human activity, but that both coexist and influence one another.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Made in the Image of God is a book for those who seek a deeper knowledge and understanding of who God is and how we as human beings relate to him physically, emotionally, and spiritually in a metaphysical way, both now and in the future. If you have an interest in the Word of God, possess some basic understanding of the Scriptures, and seek to know more about the God who provides our salvation, then this book is for you. Along our journey, there will be discussions on such topics as The Nature of God, The Nature of Mankind, The Trinity, and Jesus Christ as God and Man, while providing discussions that oppose Evolution, Atheism, Gnosticism, Pantheism, and Humanism. This book would also be good resource material for those who are studying or providing instruction in the following areas: Bible, Theology, Religion, Apologetics, Metaphysics, or Philosophy of Religion. **** ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Reid Ashbaucher was born in the United States, holds a B.A. degree in Comprehensive Bible from Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio; an M.A. degree in Christian Theology from Trinity Theological Seminary, Newburgh, Indiana; and has completed some postgraduate work towards a Ph.D. in Religious Studies, endorsed by Canterbury Christ Church University, England. Reid's occupation for the past 35 years has been associated with the communications industry while working as an Electronic Technician and Radio Broadcast Engineer. Throughout his life, Reid has sought to promote the Word of God as the source of true reality in all things. This reality can be summed up in Jesus Christ's words as he states: "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock" (Matthew 7:24; NASB).
