Summary

There’s a danger in focusing too much on our bodies. There’s also a danger in not valuing them enough. The Bible has lots to say about the body. Sam Allberry explains that all of us are fearfully and wonderfully made, and should regard our physicality as a gift. He offers biblical guidance for living in and valuing our bodies. This includes understanding gender, sexuality, and identity; dealing with aging, illness, and death; and considering the physical future hope that we have in Christ.
