The human face and the image of God (Thomas Goodwin)

Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
The face is the noblest of the exterior parts of man, as in which God's image doth shine forth, and is therefore called 'the glory of God,' 1 Cor. 11:7.

Thomas Goodwin, A Discourse of Christ the Mediator (London, 1642) in The Works of Thomas Goodwin (12 vols, Edinburgh: James Nisbet, 1861-66), 5: 266.

N.B. The appeal to 1 Corinthians 11:7 was needless, in my view, but the general point is still true.
