Second only to the study of God is the study of human behavior. The search for who we are as humans and how we are unique is a fascination of mankind from the beginning of time.
The Psalmist David stated so well the question at hand,
Yet, Thou hast made him a little lower than God and dost crown him with glory and majesty.
Thou dost make him to rule over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put all things under his feet” (Psa 8:4-6).
What is man? How can we understand this wonderful, glorious creation of God who has such an infinite aptitude for greatness and folly, courage and cowardice, love and hate, good and evil.
Much of this question has been researched and debated in universities and churches for centuries. Many outstanding books have been written on man and his/her development, yet none as clearly Christian and thoroughly scientific as this work by Dr. Joseph Bohac.
Human Development: A Christian Perspective is an outstanding accomplishment written by a scholar and pastor with the maturity and wisdom of a sage. For both the novice in the field of human behavior and the advanced student, this work will stand as an authoritative look at how we grow and change as human beings. For the Church of Jesus Christ to be more effective in winning and transforming the souls of men to the living Christ, we need a thorough understanding of God’s crowning glory: mankind. This book provides us with just such an understanding and the wisdom to minister as God intended.
