MAN: The Perennial Question brings together essays that document a lifetime of reflection on the significance of man as cast in God's world starting with those written in the sixties and ending with the author's recent writing. The focus surrounds the question 'What is Man,' from Psalm 8:4, which Thomas Huxley referred to as the 'question of questions.'
