The study of anthropology is vital to the Christian. "We must now speak of the creation of man, not merely because he, among all the works of God, is the most notable example of the Creator's justice, wisdom, and goodness, but because, as we have already said, we can have no clear and real knowledge of God without some corresponding knowledge of ourselves. This knowledge our ourselves is twofold: namely, to know what we were like when we were first created and what our condition became after the fall (Calvin, Institutes, I.xv.1).
