Publisher's Description

Popular blogger and emerging leader shows how to make our faith relevant by embracing a biblical spirituality that encompasses the mind and the physical body.

Author Bio

Matthew Anderson blogs at Mere Orthodoxy and Evangel. He graduated from Biola University's Torrey Honors Institute in 2004 and spent a year studying at Oxford University. Matthew works at The Journey, a large interdenominational church where he conducts research and develops curriculum. He and his wife live in St. Louis, Missouri.


"Evangelicals don't think we care about the body, but we really, really do. And Matthew Anderson--one of the brightest lights in the evangelical world--helps us care, ponder, think, and pray more wisely as we give our bodies as a living sacrifice to Christ." -Mark Galli, Senior Managing Editor, Christianity Today

"What does Christianity have to day about the body? Much more than you might think. Matthew Lee Anderson--one of evangelicalism's brightest young writers--is a serious student of God's Word and God's world, and in this book he patiently and insightfully explores a theology of the body from numerous angles. Rightly seeing the body as a gift from God for our good and his glory, Anderson shows us what a biblical worldview has to say about the body in relationship to community, pleasure, sex, sexuality, tattoos, death, prayer, and the church. Anderson's arguments deserve careful consideration. I suspect that many of us will think differently--and more biblically--about the body as a result of this very fine work." -Justin Taylor, Managing Editor, ESV Study Bible; blogger, "Between Two Worlds"

"Ours is a befuddling age. We're 'friends' with people we've never met, we read books that have no material substance, and we store precious material in something rather ominously termed 'the cloud.' Physicality is out; incorporeality is in. Earthen Vessels is a needed contribution in such a time. The text is at once an elegant meditation on the body, a fresh study of Scripture, and a celebration of the Western tradition. Here is philosophical theology that will foster debate, critical thought, and praise of the Savior whose physical sacrifice won our salvation." -Owen Strachan, Instructor of Christian Theology and Church History, Boyce College

Tattoos, cremation, abortion, gay sex, yoga, online: No subject is off-limits in Matthew Anderson's provocative book on the body. Anderson challenges us to deepen our understanding of what it means to be embodied. When it comes to body matters, the body matters. Though few will agree with all of Anderson's diagnoses and prescriptions, all who read this book will be challenged to consider how our views of the body line up with (or depart from) Scripture and Christian theology. This is a highly ambitious project that deserves careful consideration." -Trevin Wax, author, Counterfeit Gospels and Holy Subversion
