What Is a Man? Biologically, we are animals--homo sapiens. But men are different, born with consciousness, reason, free will, notions of morality, and other characteristics of what we call ""human nature."" Why are we different? Were we created by God or are we just accidents of nature? Are you a child of the King or just a child of King Kong? This is a book of apologetics for laypeople. It looks at arguments for the existence of God and especially at those arguments that can be drawn from human nature. It argues in plain language, with illustrations and humor, that we cannot explain human nature without God, that men are miracles.""Elegant in his simplicity. Thoughtful in his consideration. Provocative in his arguments. Scientific, theological, philosophical, humorous, yet thoroughly Christian. Jim Howard logically builds an argument for deity and humanity's longing to know and be known by that One."" --John Neihof, President, Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi""At a time when apologetics has become largely a technical conversation between academicians, Howard has given us a book designed to help the average lay person talk to their unbelieving friends about the deep questions they have about God and existence in a crazy world.""--Harry Lee Poe, Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture, Union University""The Miracle of Man is an engaging and substantive presentation of the evidence for God from human nature. This fascinating volume has the integrity of a book born in the crucible of the author's personal life and written to address the needs of family and friends. It combines readability with the careful logic of a legal mind. [This book] will strengthen the faith of those who believe in God, and challenge the unbelief of skeptics. Highly recommended.""--Gareth Lee Cockerill, Vice President of Academic Affairs, Professor of Biblical Interpretation and Theology, Wesley Biblical SeminaryJim Howard is an attorney in Edmonton, Kentucky, with thirty-six years of experience. He served one year as Judge on the Kentucky Court of Appeals. He is an active layman in his church, a frequent lay speaker, and serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi.
