Published by Elm Hill through a strategic publishing partnership with HarperCollins Christian Publishing, What is Man offers candid discernment with a subtle yet steady approach to guide the reader through clashing concepts and beliefs. The author also presents his own answer to this deeply elusive topic.

"Three thousand years ago, the Holy Bible raised the clever, simple question—‘What is man?'" said Dr. Andrews. He continued, "The book steers readers through seemingly complex issues within the latter question to be more readily understood, breaking down intricate concepts into smaller, conveniently simpler discussions throughout such areas as ancestry, composition, importance, and the ultimate fate of the human race."

In What is Man? Adam, Alien or Ape?, Dr. Andrews expertly wields key contemporary metaphysical perspectives about man, elaborately handling them in painstaking detail so that even the layperson can readily comprehend the discussion and apply to his or her own thinking and existence.

"Without a doubt, the topic of this book is among the most crucial ones we must address," said Dr. Andrews. "Historically, the proffered answers have resulted in disparate systems of thought that have deep applications for how societies conducted their affairs throughout the centuries. Assertions of what man is truly reflect on individual character and life as we live it," he concluded.

An excerpt from the book reads:
"What is man? The poet Alexander Pope proposed that Man is ‘the glory, jest and riddle of the world.' But that's a restatement of the question rather than an answer to it. The purpose of this book is to find answers, and in this opening chapter we review the main theories popular today about the origin and nature of mankind. We'll see that these ideas fall into four main categories; Man is either (1) a superior ape, (2) an evolved animal embellished with an emergent spirit, (3) an evolved animal endowed with a divine image, or (4) an unevolved special creation made by God in his own spiritual likeness. What evidence exists for each of these options, and are they mutually exclusive?"
