Why do we have bodies?

When it comes to thinking about our bodies, confusion reigns. In our secular age, there has been a loss of the body’s goodness, purpose, and end. Many people, driven by shame and idolatry, abuse their body through self-harm or self-improvement. How can we renew our understanding and see our bodies the way God does?

In Wonderfully Made, John Kleinig forms a properly biblical theology of our bodies. Through his keen sensitivity to Scripture’s witness, Kleinig explains why bodies matter. While sin has corrupted our bodies and how we think of them, God’s creation is still good. Thus, our bodies are good gifts. The Son took on a body to redeem our bodies. Kleinig addresses issues like shame, chastity, desire, gender dysphoria, and more, by integrating them into the biblical vision of creation.

Readers of Wonderfully Made will not only be equipped to engage in current issues; they will gain a robust theology of the body and better appreciation of God’s very good creation.

Praise for Wonderfully Made

This adventure in searching the Scriptures will enrich the reader’s ability to enjoy God’s giving us our corporality and to find in it rich grounds for thanksgiving and praise.

–Robert Kolb, emeritus professor of systematic theology, Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis

Wonderfully Made is a tremendous and accessible guide for Protestants who are beginning to turn (at last!) our attention toward what it means to live in the flesh that God gave us

–Matthew Lee Anderson, assistant professor, Baylor University and Founder of Mere Orthodoxy

This book will surely take its place among the growing library of works that treat this fascinating subject. I cannot recommend it too highly!

–Gregg R. Allison, professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

    Rooted in Trinitarian and incarnational theology, this book is filled with Scripture on every page. It lights the way through our present sexual darkness and confusion with a robust appreciation for what it means to be made male and female in God's image and likeness. No mere warning against ancient and contemporary bodily degradations, it is a true rhapsody on the human body as the creation of a loving God for his present and eternal glory and the welfare of our neighbor and suffering humanity. A triumph of biblical scholarship and pastoral wisdom, it equips us to live in human flesh chastely - whether married or single - by faith in the son of God who loved us and gave himself for us. (Galatians 2:20)
