Publisher's Description

The human body is a likeness of God, its design revealing insights into the church, the “body of Christ” For bestselling author Philip Yancey, the late Dr. Paul Brand—the brilliant hand surgeon who devoted his life to the poorest people of India and Louisiana—was also a likeness of God, living the kind of Christian life that exemplified what God must have had in mind. In the Likeness of God combines the complete texts of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image—both Gold Medallion Award–winners which together have sold more than half a million copies—into one volume. Also included for the first time are eight beautiful litanies of praise on the human body by Dr. Brand. In Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, Dr. Paul Brand and bestselling writer Philip Yancey explore the wonder of the human body and uncover the eternal statements that God has made in the very structure of our bodies. Their remarkable journey through inner space—the world of cells, systems, and chemistry—points to a still deeper unseen reality of God’s work in our lives. In His Image takes up where the first book leaves off. In five sections—Image, Blood, Head, Spirit, and Pain—the authors unlock the remarkable living lessons contained in our physical makeup.

Dr. Paul Brand, son to missionary parents, was a world-renowned hand surgeon and pioneer in developing tendon transfer techniques for use in the hands of those with leprosy. He trained in medicine at the University College Hospital in London and and later gained his surgical qualifications whilst working as a casualty surgeon in the London Blitz. After visiting a Leprosy Sanatorium at Chingleput, he was motivated to explore the reasons behind the deformities of this disease. A donation from a missionary woman helped him establish the New Life Rehabilitative Center, which helped dispel the stigma of leprosy amongst medical professionals. He authored and coauthored several books, including Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image.

    It took a long time to finish this book. I spent more time lost in wonder and contemplation, than I did reading. Three things make a profound impact - the miracle of the human body as Dr Brand describes it's workings; the lessons to be learnt from the analogies he makes with the Body of Christ; and the deep compassion and humility of a gifted and devoted man. This is a book I want to keep by me always.

    This is a wonderful book to open our minds to how great God's creation (our bodies) is. Too often we take life for granted, not appreciating all of the activities happening inside without us even knowing or taking notice (until something goes wrong). It also explains how all Christians are vital to the body of Christ and that our behavior as Jesus representative is important day in and day out.

    The most excellent book in the Christian category, related to our daily understand of God and ourselves as His image.

    As the son of a country doctor I can relate to both the medical insights and the "bedside manner" of Dr. Brand in this book. What a serendipity that Yancey chanced upon the laid-aside manuscripts! I learned so much about our wonderfully-made body; it's amazing construction and self-maintenance. But better yet was discovering the heart of Dr. Brand. His compassion for the sick is well conveyed; his faith in Jesus Christ calls the reader to want to know more about following Jesus. A remarkable life, lived to the full, focused on bringing the Good News of God's love to everyone he met.
