Carmen Imes – Being God’s Image

Episode: Matt speaks with Carmen about her latest book Being God’s Image, why “being” (not necessarily “bearing”) matters to this subject, what we often misunderstand about the Image of God, and what the Image of God means for today.

Guest: Dr. Carmen Imes is associate professor of Old Testament at Biola University. She received her Ph.D. at Wheaton College, after serving on the mission field in the Philippines. She’s the author of Bearing YHWH’s Name at Sinai: A Re-Examination of the Name Command of the Decalogue (Eisenbrauns) and a more popular level version of that book in Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters (IVP). Most recently, she’s written Being God’s Image: Why Creation Still Matters (IVP), which we’re discussing today. She also creates Torah Tuesday videos, so check those out on YouTube.
