(PUBJossey-Bass)"Paulsell writes about bathing and clothing the body, the necessity of exercise and rest, sexuality, and physical debilitations. Through this extremely well-written book both lay readers and clergy will develop an appreciation for the body. Highly recommended,"---Library Journal. 224 pages, softcover.
In this exquisite and sensitive book, author Stephanie Paulsell draws on resources from the Christian tradition to show how we can learn to celebrate the body's pleasures, protect the body's vulnerabilities, and develop the practices that will ultimately transform our troubled relationship with our bodies to one of honor and joy. A practical resource, Honoring the Body weaves together scripture, history, and lively stories that can help us recover and sustain an appreciation for ourselves as physical beings.
Stephanie Paulsell teaches at Harvard Divinity School. She is the former director of ministry studies and senior lecturer in religion and literature at the University of Chicago Divinity School and is a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
