Fearfully and Wonderfully

The Marvel of Bearing God's Image

by Philip Yancey, Paul Brand

Dis­cov­er this updat­ed and com­bined edi­tion of two best­selling books!

The human body holds end­less­ly fas­ci­nat­ing secrets. The resilience of skin, the strength and struc­ture of the bones, the dynam­ic bal­ance of the mus­cles — your phys­i­cal being is knit accord­ing to a pat­tern of stun­ning pur­pose. Now Gold Medal­lion win­ners Fear­ful­ly and Won­der­ful­ly Made and In His Image have been com­plete­ly revised and updat­ed to offer a new audi­ence time­less reflec­tions on the body. 

Join renowned lep­rosy sur­geon Dr. Paul Brand and best­selling writer Philip Yancey on a remark­able jour­ney through inner space — a spell­bind­ing account of med­ical inter­ven­tion, pain and heal­ing, and the courage of human­i­ty. Dis­cov­er here the eter­nal truths revealed by our seem­ing­ly ordi­nary exis­tence. The human body is a win­dow into the very struc­ture of God’s cre­ation and a tes­ta­ment to God’s glory.

The read­er comes away in awe of the fear­ful and won­der­ful con­struc­tion of the body God has giv­en to each of us, an appre­ci­a­tion for the spir­i­tu­al realm it illus­trates, and a rev­er­ence for the God in whom both find their source.”
Christianity Today
Beau­ti­ful­ly writ­ten, absorb­ing, and high­ly read­able (even for the non­bi­o­log­i­cal­ly inclined), the book is tremen­dous­ly suc­cess­ful in devel­op­ing a metaphor the New Tes­ta­ment uses more than thir­ty times to refer to the uni­ver­sal church. The read­er gains not only spir­i­tu­al lessons but a sense of awe and won­der at the human body’s com­plex phys­i­ol­o­gy and anatomy.”
