The search for dignity is a titanic struggle, an epic adventure, prodded by a pain that will not go away. Modern man has an aching void. The emptiness we feel cannot be relieved by one more gourmet meal or another snort of cocaine. We must search further and probe deeper if the haunting cries of indignity are to be silenced. Ours must be a transcendent quest—going beyond the trivial to the ultimate questions of our worth as human beings.
R. C. Sproul writes this book for Christians and for anyone else who shares in the search. He explores the human cry for dignity, the deep desire for significance, the hallowed longing for love and respect, and he touches the aching void in the home, the school, the hospital, the prison, the church, and the workplace.

"This book is powerful. It speaks in understandable terms to one of the most critical issues of our day—the dignity and worth of man—and equips the believer in the living God with magnificent insights and answers for a world desperately yearning for meaning."
"Here the biblical doctrines of man and creation stand at the head of a most practical and wide-ranging description of the modern person. . . . The 'holistic' nature of biblical truth shines through in every chapter . . . this book is important for all Christians."
