Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality by Nancy R. Pearcey

Why the call to Love Thy Body? To counter a pervasive hostility toward the body and biology that drives today's headline stories. Nancy Pearcey, bestselling author of Total Truth, goes beyond politically correct talking points to give a riveting exposé of the dehumanizing impact of secularist views of life and sexuality, demonstrating that they undermine human dignity and destroy human rights.


Many people absorb media mantras on watershed ethical questions without being aware of their hurtful implications. Consider:
 
    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? 

A former agnostic, Pearcey has been hailed in The Economist as "America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual." She turns the tables on media clichés that misportray Christianity as harsh or hateful. Fearlessly and with compassion, she makes a surprising and persuasive case that Christianity--unlike secularism--is holistic, sustaining the dignity of the body and biology, thus giving a secure basis for human rights.
 
Throughout she engages readers with stories of people wrestling with hard questions in their own lives--their pain, their struggles, their triumphs.
