Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality

Pearcey, Nancy R.

A persuasive, compassionate and uncompromisingly biblical theology of the human body. Embracing our physical body as fundamental to our nature and joy as creatures made in the image of God, this intelligent and engaging critique dismantles the perilous cultural case for moral relativism, and shows how a biblical understanding of humanity and personhood is the only way to true fulfillment.

Publisher's Description

Why the call to Love Thy Body? To counter a pervasive hostility toward the body and biology that drives today's headline stories:


Transgenderism: Activists detach gender from biology. Kids down to kindergarten are being taught their bodies are irrelevant. Is this affirming--or does it demean the body?


Homosexuality: Advocates disconnect sexuality from biological identity. Is this liberating--or does it denigrate biology?


Abortion: Supporters deny the fetus is a person, though it is biologically human. Does this mean equality for women--or does it threaten the intrinsic value of all humans?


Euthanasia: Those who lack certain cognitive abilities are said to be no longer persons. Is this compassionate--or does it ultimately put everyone at risk?


In Love Thy Body, bestselling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct slogans with a riveting exposE of the dehumanizing worldview that shapes current watershed moral issues.


Pearcey then turns the tables on media boilerplate that misportrays Christianity as harsh or hateful. A former agnostic, she makes a surprising and persuasive case that Christianity is holistic, sustaining the dignity of the body and biology.


Throughout she entrances readers with compassionate stories of people wrestling with hard questions in their own lives--their pain, their struggles, their triumphs.
