The Voice of God is a Heartbeat Away

In Fearfully & Wonderfully Made, Philip Yancey and Dr. Paul Brand revealed how God’s voice is encoded in the very structure of our bodies. In His Image takes up where its predecessor left off, beckoning us once again inward and onward to fresh exploration and discovery.

Yancey and Brand show how accurately and intricately the human body portrays the Body of Christ. In five sections—Image, Blood, Head, Spirit, and Pain—the acclaimed surgeon and the award-winning writer unlock the remarkable, living lessons contained in our physical makeup. This Gold Medallion Award-winning book will open your eyes to the complex miracle of the human body, and the even more compelling spiritual truths that it reflects.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynley | 2/8/2014

    " This book was, by far, one of the best books I have EVER read. "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" unites the two topics that I love the most: God and human anatomy and physiology. Yancey writes in such beautiful language and detail that even if you have never found the human body intriguing, you can't help but be drawn into his story. Yancey compares human body structures to those of the body of Christ, and the metaphor work's beautifully. I would go on, except I fear that by talking about the book, I will fail to portray how good it really is. I cannot recommend this book more highly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 2/5/2014

    " This book was jaw-droppingly interesting and inspiring and educational! I loved it as a Christian believer, as a personal trainer and Yoga instructor, as a student of 'life' ! Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/24/2014

    " I am so-so on Yancey, but I love Paul Brand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Barnier | 1/23/2014

    " When a renowned leprosy specialist shares his fascination with the makings of the human body, and the subsequent fingerprint of God, it makes for great reading. "

    " Science read-aloud with My Girl. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thing Two | 1/19/2014

    " Written by a doctor and a writer, this book explores the miracles hidden in the human body and the eternal statements God made with this design. Easy to read, easy to understand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ewald | 12/31/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 12/22/2013

    " Yancey is a wonderful author I always find worth reading. This collaboration with the late Paul Brand is an earlier work which reflects the sacredness of life, the power of God, and mystery of sentient creatures living for him. Brand's contribution emanates from his work as a medical doctor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tasha | 11/13/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney Beck | 9/21/2013

    " This is a great book comparing the functions of our Human Body with the Body of Christ. Its written with an incredibly humble doctor who spent his life serving leprosy patients in India. Its a really good one to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Campton | 9/16/2013

    " The insights of the leprosy specialist Paul Brand are woven by Yancey into a profound exposition of the New Testement metophor of the church as the body of Christ. "

    " Excellent! His experience working with people with Hansen's disease (leprosy). He lived with them for years and talks of his work with them, as well as his relationships. Worthwhile read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/25/2013

    " I have actually only read "In His Image" but it was a fantastic read, and has great perspective on understanding the human body and how the internal workings of the body point us toward the Divine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Hanko | 4/27/2013

    " While the author had some nice comparisons to make concerning the human body and the church, his theology is badly flawed and, it seemed to me, that in one place he opened the door to evolution. I have little patience for those who try to combine evolution and true religion. "

    " This is such a wonderful book! While learning lots about the inner workings of the human body, I gained an interesting perspective on life as one part of the body of Christ.

About the Author
Dr. Paul Brand was a world-renowned hand surgeon and leprosy specialist. He served as clinical professor emeritus, Department of Orthopedics, at the University of Washington and was coauthor with Philip Yancey of The Gift Nobody Wants and Fearfully and Wonderfully Made.
About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
