We can clearly say that the Bible is a book that describes two themes. First, it teaches who God is, what he thinks, and what he does. Second, it teaches as what the human beings are created and how they should live. Frankly to say, humans do not know well about themselves. Because of it, they are struggling to find it out gropingly. Why don’t they know about themselves? It is because they are the one who are created. What is the purpose of your life? How should you live? Where did you come from and where would you go? For these questions, no matter how much you try, it is impossible to get the perfect answer. If you want to know it, you have only one way to ask the person who created you. This book figures out the humans that Bible describes, in fact, it describes what humans need to be from the perspective of God that created them. If you want to know the purpose you are living or you don’t satisfy current yourself, find yourself out that Bible says and live your new life.

Bible says creation of humans as follows in Genesis 1:26.

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

This book starts to focus on the meaning of the original language in the words of “likeness” and “image” (demut and tselem) that are used in above and figures out the truth about purpose of the humans’ existence over the entire Bible.

This book is not so-called religious book but belonged to a field of biblical theology and written for the people who have knowledge of Bible on some level or research Bible professionally. This book is well worth reading to read repeatedly.
