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 Provost and Professor of Theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary in Conway, Arkansas.
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.

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’.

Every book Owen Strachan writes is worth the cover price, but ‘Reenchanting Humanity’ doubly so. Strachan tackles the pressing biblical, theological, and cultural issues pertaining to human existence and experience. As he does, Strachan is resolutely orthodox, helpfully prescient, and unmistakably clear. Strachan offers the reader a guided tour through biblical anthropology, and any who desires to engage these issues owes it to himself to buy and read this book.

Not only is Strachan enjoyable to read, but I find that he helps me communicate traditional systematic assertions in arresting and memorable ways. I commend this volume to scholars, seminarians, and pastors as we seek to reflect faithfully on and teach clearly about all that God says in the Scriptures about man.
