In The True Image, Philip Edgcumbe Hughes enhances our understanding of the divine image by integrating this concept with the doctrines of man and Christ. Hughes ultimately expounds upon the idea that the doctrine of man can be truly attained only in light of the doctrine of Christ. As he states, "Mankind's destiny in Christ is precisely the fruition of mankind's origin in Christ. This means . . . that redemption, which is the fulfilment of all God's purposes in creation, loses its proper force if it is considered in isolation from creation." Exegetically solid in its scope and rightly systematic in its approach, The True Image is a monumental work from a premier evangelical theologian that deserves a place on every seminary student's bookshelf.
