Product description

From the Back Cover

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, arguing that a holistic Christian view sustains the dignity of the body and biology. Throughout the book, Pearcey entrances readers with compassionate stories of people wrestling with hard questions in their own lives--their pain, their struggles, their triumphs.


"Terrific new book!"--Robert P. George, Princeton University

"Writing with both deep compassion and clear thinking, Nancy Pearcey helps us to better understand the worldview that lies behind the huge cultural shifts we have recently experienced in the West. . . .Pearcey is a wonderful guide."--Sam Allberry, author, Is God Anti-Gay?

"Nancy Pearcey models on every page how to understand secular worldviews. . . . Love Thy Body is a must-read book."--Rosaria Butterfield, former professor, Syracuse University; author, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert


"An astute but accessible analysis of the intellectual roots of the most important moral ills facing us today: abortion, euthanasia, and redefining the family."--Richard Weikart, California State University, Stanislaus

"Highly readable, insightful, and informative."--Mary Poplin, Claremont Graduate University; author, Is Reality Secular?

"Unmasks the far-reaching practical consequences of mind-body dualism better than anyone I have ever seen."--Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president, The Ruth Institute

"Love Thy Body richly enhances the treasure box that is Pearcey's collective work."--Glenn T. Stanton, Focus on the Family

"Essential reading . . . Love Thy Body brings clarity and understanding to the multitude of complex and confusing views in discussions about love and sexuality."--Becky Norton Dunlop, Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow, The Heritage Foundation

"Pearcey gets straight to the issue of our day: What makes humans valuable in the first place? You must get this book. Don't just read it. Master it."--Scott Klusendorf, president, Life Training Institute
