Summary:
Gerald P. Boersma examines Augustine's early theology of the image of God, or imago dei, and shows that he affirms that both Christ and the human person are the imago dei. Boersma contextualizes Augustine's theology prior to his ordination (386-391) by demonstrating that it represents a significant departure from earlier Latin pro-Nicene theologies of image.
