Reenchanting Humanity is a work of systematic theology that focuses on the doctrine of humanity. Engaging the major anthropological questions of the age, like transgenderism, homosexuality, technology, and more, author Owen Strachan establishes a Christian anthropology rooted in Biblical truth, in stark contrast to the popular opinions of the modern age.
Owen is Associate Professor of Christian Theology at MBTS in Kansas City, Missouri. He is the Director of the Center for Public Theology at MBTS and author of ‘Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind’.
Strachan effectively argues that we rightly reenchant humanity, and thus come to see the truth, goodness, and beauty of humanity, only when we view it in relation to the end for which it was created: conformity to Jesus Christ, the meaning of life made flesh.

This book is a deep well issuing forth a fountain of biblical insight about what it means to be a human being created in the image of God. Drink deeply from this wonderful book.

This book supplies a doctrine of mankind that is derived from God’s Word, that is both Christological and covenantal, and that celebrates that our chief end is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. ‘Reenchanting Humanity’ is a gift to the church in the twenty–first century.

In this ‘humble attempt to see humanity afresh through biblical eyes,’ Owen Strachan asks, and brilliantly answers, questions such as ‘Does the human person live in an ordered cosmos and have an appointed identity, or does he make his own identity in a world without God?’ Reenchanting Humanity could not be more timely. In this Christological anthropology, Strachan offers a holistic vision of humanity for our disenchanted age. Who says anthropology has to be boring?
