What does it mean to be human? Are humans unique among God's creatures? These questions have often been answered with appeal to man's rational animality, capacity for language, and calling to care for God's creation. Recently, however, Posthumanism has challenged the central place that man occupies in classical Christian thought. Tracing the origins and development of this movement (in part) to radical trends within secular humanism, Michael Plato helps us to analyze and to evaluate a vision of (post)-humanity that is only beginning to make itself felt in late modern culture, and which is undoubtedly here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Many Protestants today have not merely lost touch with their church’s past, but feel that it has lost touch with them.
With Davenant Digests we seek to bring the church’s past into clear focus for Christians today, and use it to shed light on the challenges of the church's present. Written in a clear, lively, and down-to-earth style, these short introductions aim to answer questions that ordinary Christians have, in terms that ordinary Christians will want to read.
