Book Review - What God Has to Say about Our Bodies

What God Has to Say about Our Bodies

How the Gospel Is Good News for Our Physical Selves
By: Sam Allberry

Book Review

I have thought for several years that Christian authors have neglected the topic of our bodies in relation to our Christianity, and during that same time I have read some secular psychology on it. What has been written from the biblical counseling perspective (at least what I have read), has been significantly anemic. For those reasons I was eager to read Allberry's book, and I consider his work in it a good start. He touches on the major biblical passages and collates them with helpful illustrations along the way.

The major omission in this book as well as with much of Christian literature is the topic of psychological trauma and how it relates to our bodies. There is a large segment of the population out there that is trying to process psychological trauma in conjunction with their psychosomatic union. And, with much of Christian literature failing to address this, some Christians are underserved because they do not fit the narrative of the popular Christian literature.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
