The human body is a likeness of God, its design revealing insights into the church, the “body of Christ” For bestselling author Philip Yancey, the late Dr. Paul Brand—the brilliant hand surgeon who devoted his life to the poorest people of India and Louisiana—was also a likeness of God, living the kind of Christian life that exemplified what God must have had in mind. In the Likeness of God combines the complete texts of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image—both Gold Medallion Award–winners which together have sold more than half a million copies—into one volume. Also included for the first time are eight beautiful litanies of praise on the human body by Dr. Brand. In Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, Dr. Paul Brand and bestselling writer Philip Yancey explore the wonder of the human body and uncover the eternal statements that God has made in the very structure of our bodies. Their remarkable journey through inner space—the world of cells, systems, and chemistry—points to a still deeper unseen reality of God’s work in our lives. In His Image takes up where the first book leaves off. In five sections—Image, Blood, Head, Spirit, and Pain—the authors unlock the remarkable living lessons contained in our physical makeup.

Orthodox Christian theology is often presented as the direct inheritor of the doctrine and tradition of the early Church. But continuity with the past is only part of the truth; it would be false to conclude that the eastern section of the Christian Church is in any way static. Orthodoxy, building on its patristic foundations, has blossomed in the modern period. This volume focuses on the way Orthodox theological tradition is understood and lived today. It explores the Orthodox understanding of what theology is: an expression of the Church's life of prayer, both corporate and personal, from which it can never be separated. Besides discussing aspects of doctrine, the book portrays the main figures, themes and developments that have shaped Orthodox thought. There is particular focus on the Russian and Greek traditions, as well as the dynamic but less well-known Antiochian tradition and the Orthodox presence in the West.

Vladimir Lossky established himself as one of the most brilliant Orthodox scholars in the years between his departure from Russia in 1923 and his death in 1958. His uncompromising faithfulness to scriptural and patristic tradition, coupled with his constant concern for an articulate Orthodox witness in the West, are indispensable for understanding the theology of the Eastern Church. Here, in twelve essays, he explores the implications of the Orthodox understanding of the human being's destiny--communion in love with the true God.

Everyone who reads the Bible must admit that it tells us to do things that we never have done and cannot do in our fleshly bodies. One reason is that God our Creator is telling us what He wants us to be and do as created in His image and likeness. Our purpose is in our image and likeness of God our Creator, not like the dust of the ground or the flesh of our parents. Most children don and rsquo;t know that they are created in the image and likeness of God, and their parents have not asked God for His spirit for their children so they can be taught this vital truth. The reason parents don and rsquo;t ask God for His spirit for their children is because they don and rsquo;t recognize the need for Him. There are several things mankind cannot do in the flesh, and they must recognize their origin in the image and likeness of God. Mankind must recognize being in the image and likeness of God to, first, love God with all their being and love his neighbors as himself; second, to obey God and his parents as required in God and rsquo;s word; third, to trust God with all his heart; fourth, to worship God in spirit and in truth; and fifth, to glorify God in his body and spirit, which are God. The devil does not want mankind to know that he is created in the image and likeness of God because man will always defeat Satan and fulfill God's will. and nbsp; and nbsp;

Through the ages, mankind has longed to understand and explain our origin. The Bible tells us we were created in the image and likeness of God and that God formed our body from the dust of the ground. But exactly how were we made? What was our form like? How did this body differ from Jesus when he took on human flesh? How do we rightly address the relationship between Creation and incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and re-creation? In Made for Glory, award-winning author Joshua A. McClure combines testimony and biblical inquiry to unlock mysteries that have great implications for our lives today. His flair for graphic, powerful biblical study removes blinders and opens the way for deep reflection on past assumptions and misinformation about the purposes of God for his created beings. A must-read for anyone pursuing the truth of who you are and what it means to be made in God's glorious image. BIO Joshua McClure (BA, Biblical Studies, Barrington College; Certificate of Advanced Theological Studies, Andover Newton Theological School) served for nearly three decades as the senior pastor of The Pleasant Street Baptist Church in Westerly, Rhode Island, and is a multi-published author. Joshua lives in Bradford, Rhode Island with his wife, Ida. "In this book you will walk the bridge that brings the great claims of faith together with truths of science. . . . A gift to the faith community that people will be talking about for years to come." -Rev. Dr. Clayton A. (Cal) Lord, Jr., pastor of Central Baptist Church of Westerly, RI "Joshua McClure is one of the most brilliant minds I know. . . . Readers will begin to ask themselves questions that never before formed in their own thinking." -Rev. Dr. Vincent F. Thompson, Jr., pastor of Community Baptist Church, Newport, RI "A journey that enables one to discover more intimately the God who through self-revelation . . . invites us to experience him and the infinite blessings and possibilities designed for us." -Rev. Dr. Carl H. Balark, Jr., pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, Providence, RI

We are created in the image and likeness of God, but how often do we think about that? What does it really mean in terms of our day-to-day lives and in our search for the divine? Fr. Rolheiser takes you on a three-part journey through the scriptures, Gospels and the writings of theologians and scholars to describe the Struggles inherent in our Blessedness. He shows us our naivete regarding the power of this Blessedness, how it can also be a source of perpetual disquiet and restlessness, and finally, how to live with the Divine Fire inside of us."
