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 Strachan is Associate Professor of Christian Theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. He is also Senior Fellow for the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW).
There is a desperate need for Christians to have a clear, comprehensive, biblically grounded, God–centered, definition of humanity, and for that definition to transform the way we live, love, and minister. Owen Strachan has wonderfully met this need in ‘Reenchanting Humanity’. I hope that this important book has the deep and wide influence it deserves!

If you want to know who you are in light of Scripture, and learn how to speak good news to our poor lost world, this book is must reading. From Scripture and faithful theological reasoning, Strachan carefully and wisely answers some of the most significant questions of our day. In this book we have the antidote to the diseased thinking of our day: a sound theological and Christocentric anthropology.

Having lost our vision for God in previous generations, our vision for humanity is up for grabs. Consequently, the doctrine of humanity needs fresh and clear articulation in the church and in the culture. It is heartening to see young scholars like Owen Strachan take up this challenge in his book ‘Reenchanting Humanity’.

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?
