Grenz's concern is the telling of the story of salvation in terms of Jesus as image of God. He begins by outlining the <em>imago Dei</em> Christology of the New Testament. Next, he places this Christology in the context of the biblical story of man as image of God. Grenz also draws out the implications of this Christology for the flow of theological construction.
The main thesis of this article is that we find in the Bible three insights that guide godly relationships between women and men. First, the author directs his readers to the mutuality within the triune God. The next insight is that the goal of male-female relationships is to reflect the very character of God. Finally, Grenz focuses on the means to godly relationships, i.e., empowering the other.
