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.”
