In Fearfully & Wonderfully Made, my coauthor Dr. Paul Brand revealed how God’s voice is encoded in the very structure of our bodies. In His Image takes up where its predecessor left off, beckoning me once again toward fresh exploration and discovery.
In his reflections, Dr. Brand demonstrates how accurately and intricately the human body portrays the Body of Christ. In five sections—Image, Blood, Head, Spirit, and Pain—the acclaimed surgeon unlocks the remarkable, living lessons contained in our physical makeup. We hope this book will help open your eyes to the complex miracle of the human body, and the even more compelling spiritual truths that it reflects.
