Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
Within the pages of Gordon H. Hurlburt’s new book, UNIQUELY HUMAN - What Our Humanity REALLY Looks Like, ($10.99, paperback, 9781498462372; $5.99, e-book, 9781498462389) the author answers the question, “What is personhood really all about?” That is a question about which there is perhaps an all-time level of confusion. Is humanity simply the product of long ages of evolution? The author believes that in a world of mass confusion about the real meaning of being human, readers need to consider the Creator's plan and purpose for creating them. He stresses that evolution says that humans are only highly evolved animals. Secular humanism treats people as "gods" within their own world, eliminating the need for any Supreme Being outside of oneself. Both these views lead ultimately to the vast majority of the problems that humans struggle with in the world. A major solution to these problems will be found as readers come to understand something of God's perspective in creation.
“I hope readers will gain a new appreciation for our humanity as the Bible presents it, despite the many reasons for discouragement over our many failures,” states the author. “My book provides the Biblical basis for a true recognition of the value of our humanity, as the Bible presents it.”
Gordon H. Hurlburt was born of missionary parents in the former Belgian Congo. After graduating from Biola College (now University) in Los Angeles with a BA in Christian Education, he served in Kenya and England, in missionary ministry among people originally from India. Gordon later served with Children’s Bible Ministries here in the USA. He is now retired and lives in Florida. He credits writing this book to a lifetime of observing the world and its ways of thinking – with both positive and negative results. He also has more than 60 years of reading and studying the Bible and appreciates its reliability and its relevance to the modern world and its needs. Gordon is strongly committed to unshakeable faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord, and to His Word as the supreme authority.
