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).
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’.

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.
Professor of Biblical Studies, Boyce College, Louisville, Kentucky
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?

Strachan uses the Bible as a magnifying lens and looks at mankind in the context of this anthropocentric, narcissistic, sin–ridden, self–sufficient, self–defined, and high–tech generation and has given us, not only his analysis of the problem, but also its cause and its cure. I love the way the author begins with the image of God and ends with Christ, as the God–man who reenchants our humanity. This is a must–read.
