Book - 2018
Rate this:
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 body is irrelevant to their authentic self. Is this affirming, or does it demean the body? Homosexuality: Advocates disconnect sexuality from biological identity as male or female. Is this liberating, or does it denigrate biology? Abortion: Supporters say the fetus is not 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 human but not 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 exposé 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. - Publisher.
