I found the very first quote borrowed for this book was more than fitting: "Men go abroad to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Filled with poignant medic I found the very first quote borrowed for this book was more than fitting: "Men go abroad to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering. Filled with poignant medical observations and fascinating personal experiences regarding Leprosy, the book makes an ongoing analogy between physical and spiritual health.
The authors draw out an array of medical examples, both the beautiful and the horrible, using them to illustrate the true nature of Christianity in relatively simplistic terms.
The term: 'body of Christ' is presented in ways I had never considered--but which made more perfect and poetic sense than I could have hoped. Tempered with deep compassion and genuine love for humanity in spite of its flaws and failings, the book is unwaveringly hopeful and filled with awe. A fresh perspective on things I so easily take for granted.

Each chapter describes in detail a specific function in the body, such as nerves or the skeleton. At the end of the chapter, the authors wrap up by comparing that function to the body of Christ, and how we can fulfill that need. We were absolutely fascinated by this book and had wonderful conversations about it.
Sep 02, Jimmy Reagan rated it it was amazing. This book is special. It could only have been written by a man deeply in love with Jesus and with medicine. If you read the preface you will discover how Philip Yancey met Dr. Paul Brand and how they came to be co-authors. It appears to me that the joint production worked this way: Dr. Brand provided the substance of medicine and spiritual insight while Mr.
Yancey with his journalistic background cast it in beautiful words. Yancey seems in awe of Dr. Brand and I can see why. Besides your own personal edification, this book will also supply you with a host of exquisite illustrations for teaching and preaching. Brand is one of those doctors that you would dream of having. A doctor who sees the big picture of so many things and yet can perform tasks that in our day are usually only done by specialists.
That he has spent much of his career in dispensing his considerable talents to those afflicted with leprosy tells you so much about the person he is. He proves to be a reflective Christian as well and his first two chapters on being image-bearers are nothing to sneeze at. In part two, he does a commendable job in four chapters of highlighting diversity and unity. Part three brings out many observations of the spiritual nature from his areas of specialty including the skin and bones and other such things.
The fourth part that he calls proof of life looks at blood and breath. His section on pain, and his work among the suffering helps you realize that we are listening to an expert, is spiritually rich. The final section on the brain is profound as well. I never felt he stretched anything in making his spiritual points. In fact, in every chapter, I was more amazed by my God. You will want this one! I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
The opinions I have expressed are my own. Oct 17, Yibbie rated it it was ok. I am extremely grateful to the authors of this book. If you, like I was, are feeling overwhelmed at the sin and pain that fills this world this book is the perfect cure.
Instead, it points to our magnificent God. That is guaranteed to lift your spirits and overwhelm you with the joy of the Lo I am extremely grateful to the authors of this book. That is guaranteed to lift your spirits and overwhelm you with the joy of the Lord. I do have some concerns though, and they are the reason for my lowered rating.
It covers a very wide variety of topics, but none in any real depth, and that may the biggest problem. If they had taken more time to expound on what they are trying to teach or avoided some more controversial topics until they could clearly express their stand on them, all of my concerns may have been wiped away. Another part of the problem may come from trying to draw out the illustration of the Church as a body in too much detail.
Any illustration breaks down eventually, and occasionally it seems that they try to make it say more than can be drawn from the Bible alone. As it is, I will proceed with caution until I can fully understand what they are trying to teach. Here are a few of my specific concerns. The focus of many of the illustrations, chapters, is on the demonstration of love for others in the Christian life, a truly vital point of obedience in any Christian life. But, as presented here that becomes the most important part of the Christian life and witness.
That leads to some blanket condemnation of past mission societies, with occasional missionaries praised. It also seems to support a very broad ecumenism. Actually, Catholic medical missionaries come in for more praise than strict Protestant missionaries.

Paul Wilson Brand , CBE 17 July — 8 July was a pioneer in developing tendon transfer techniques for use in the hands of those with leprosy. He was the first physician to appreciate that leprosy is not a disease of the tissue but of the nerves: it is the loss of the sensation of pain which makes sufferers susceptible to injury and leads to tissue rotting away, especially in the extremities. Brand contributed extensively to the fields of hand surgery and hand therapy through his publications and lectures, and wrote popular autobiographical books about his childhood, his parents' missionary work, and his philosophy about the valuable properties of pain. In his books he gives vivid descriptions of his time as a boy in India with regular bouts of dysentery and malaria in the area known as "Kolli Malai". His father died in of blackwater fever , when Brand was
This is a list of books that have made an impact on me. I wrote a little line about why after the title. I hope you can find something that helps you, too!
A Reading of Psalm For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of. I had become part of several clubs, I had participated in a couple of musicals, and I attended church on a regular basis. But I was no closer to a solution to my gender problems, and it was wearing on me greatly.
Everett Koop, former Surgeon General. The reader gains not only spiritual lessons but a sense of awe and wonder at the human body's complex physiology and anatomy. Paul Brand's book, like his life as a doctor, is wholly admirable. A great appreciation of the human body, life, and belief in God fills this book. For people whose spiritual lives have been too disembodied, Dr. Brand's attention to living bodies invites us to return to our true selves.

Пора, ребята! - Джабба повернулся к директору. - Мне необходимо решение. Или мы начинаем отключение, или же мы никогда этого не сделаем. Как только эти два агрессора увидят, что Бастион пал, они издадут боевой клич.
Коммандер зажмурился, сильнее сжал запястье и потянул. Труп сдвинулся на несколько сантиметров. Он потянул сильнее.
Она показала на экран. Все глаза были устремлены на нее, на руку Танкадо, протянутую к людям, на три пальца, отчаянно двигающихся под севильским солнцем. Джабба замер. - О Боже! - Он внезапно понял, что искалеченный гений все это время давал им ответ.
Это открытие было болезненным, однако правда есть правда. Стратмор скачал файл с Цифровой крепостью и запустил его в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, но программа Сквозь строй отказалась его допустить, потому что файл содержал опасную линейную мутацию. В обычных обстоятельствах это насторожило бы Стратмора, но ведь он прочитал электронную почту Танкадо, а там говорилось, что весь трюк и заключался в линейной мутации. Решив, что никакой опасности нет, Стратмор запустил файл, минуя фильтры программы Сквозь строй. Сьюзан едва могла говорить.
Беккер не мог оторвать глаз от ее руки. У него кружилась голова. Слова, которые он прочитал, были теми же, что произнес немец: ПРОВАЛИВАЙ И УМРИ. Девушка, заметно смутившись, посмотрела на свою руку. - Это нацарапал мой дружок… ужасно глупо, правда.
