We know that there are parts of our self which are hidden from our view. Many of us wonder how we might identify those deeper aspects of ourselves that shape our thoughts and actions. What really is in the human heart? This book seeks to shed some light on the matter by analyzing the basic human motives which have evolved over millions of years and today lie―largely closed to our awareness ―beneath the sophisticated persona we present to the public. The author writes as a Christian theologian who seeks to both contribute to the renewal of theological anthropology and to assist believers to deepen their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live, and in so doing grow to a fuller maturity as disciples of Jesus Christ.
