Uniquely Unique: A Language of God Podcast Series
A six-part mini series exploring what it means to be human
In this Language of God podcast mini series — Uniquely Unique — host Jim Stump is joined by our producer Colin Hoogerwerf to come to a better understanding of what it means to be human—to bear the image of God. Along the way, you’ll hear from a variety of experts from a wide range of disciplines, drawing on biology, history, anthropology, philosophy, theology and more to try to make sense of our human identity.
UNIQUELY UNIQUE: EPISODES
Uniquely Unique | What Does It Mean To Be Human?
Part One in a six-part mini-series exploring what it means to be human.

Part Two in the Uniquely unique mini-series. When we look for what makes humans unique on this planet, looking at our biology is an obvious first step.

Part Four in the Uniquely unique mini-series. We explore our use of technology starting with the simplest tools up to the recent advances in artificial intelligence to see what role it has had in our human identity
Uniquely Unique | Our Sad History
Part Five in the Uniquely unique mini-series. In the long history of searching for what makes humans special we have repeatedly caused great harm to our neighbors, both human and non-human.
Uniquely Unique | Image of God
Part Six in the Uniquely Unique mini-series. We take stock of one more distinguishing feature of humans—the image of God.
I certainly think that there are aspects of human biology that have contributed to our ways of relating to one another, given us some capacities as a species that God must have seen and said, “OK, that there’s one of my creatures that’s ready.”
