J. Wentzel van Huysteen On The Imago Dei

Here is a good quote from Sze Zeng's Blog:
“...the image of God is not found in humans, but is the human; and for this reason imago dei can be read only as imatatio dei; to be created in the image of God means we should act like God , and so attain holiness by caring for others and for the world...”
(J. Wentzel van Huysteen, Alone in the World?: Human Uniqueness in Science and Theology, p.320. Italic added.)
