The Image of God and Human Embodiment
In many views of the imago Dei, it becomes difficult to see why embodiment is important for being human. Instead, they often imply that the body is merely instrumental and maybe even unnecessary for humanity. A more adequate understanding of the imago Dei will explain why the body is fundamentally significant for human existence and flourishing.
