Imago Dei is a subject that fascinates me. It's also a key argument against macro-evolution. Ken Samples wrote a book on the subject that was rather interesting. In it he speaks about 3 traditional viewpoints (resemblance, representative and relational). A quick link to an article for explanation https://reflectionsbyken.wordpress.com/2017/09/05/what-does-it-mean-to-be-made-in-the-image-of-god/. Although to say that only man is created in the image of God to me is a stretch. Grammatically in the Bible it uses "our" then it uses "his" Genesis 1:26–27. While I have heard that this is a reference to the Holy Trinity, I have come upon research to suggest this was likely a reference to the divine council https://www.thedivinecouncil.com/. This may be so far away from your topic, but the Imago Dei is one of those mysteries I look forward to learning everything about when I ascend and attend heaven's school of mysteries.
