What does God have to say about our bodies?
To modern secular culture, the human body is little more than a vehicle for free self-expression-our bodies belong to us, and we can do with them as we please. In this way, the prevailing culture has lost sight of the true significance of the body. Similarly, Christians also tend to underemphasize the significance of the physical body. In What God Has to Say about Our Bodies, Sam Allberry argues that the Bible has a lot to say about the body, and shows how the practical significance of Scripture's teaching on this topic impacts how Christians should think and behave. Organized around three categories-what God intended for the body (creation), the impact of sin on the body (fall), and how God will redeem the body (redemption)-the book provides believers with a balanced and accessible theology of the body as they seek to glorify God in everything they do.
Sam Allberry is Associate Minister of St Marys Church, Maidenhead, UK. He enjoys American history, bad puns and slowly perfecting his recipe for Thai green curry. He is the author of Lifted: Experiencing the resurrection life.
