Reviews - What do customers think about In His Image?
Hope for the destitute Feb 21, 2007
Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey explain how God is in everything that happens to us, wither we are in great pain, or overcome by joy. The stories that he told about when he was in India are astounding, wither he was trying to repair a Leper victims hands, or just trying to persuade his mother to stop living in the mountains by herself when she was taking care of the natives.
In the United States Dr. Paul Brand has the title, Chief of Rehabilitation of the U.S. Public Health in Carville, Louisiana, Clinical Professor of Surgery at Louisiana State University Medical School, he was also awarded the prestigious Albert Lasker Award and appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire. But in this book you will find him in India with the title, Dr. Brand, who was never too proud to do the dirtiest jobs, like bandaging the blistered feet of lepers or cleaning puss from a boils victim. If you want to read about a man who was a true servant sent by God to help the poorest of the poor and to give hope to the destitute, you'll find this book irresistible.

In His Image! Sep 13, 2004
No one can claim that evolution is true after reading this spritually and educationally written book. It is an eye opener of the human body and what God and the bible has to do with it.This book was an edification and encouragement to me and I hope that you will find the inspiration that I have found from this book.I don't regret buying this book and garuntee you won't to!
Excellent reading Jun 17, 2004
This is a lovely book, entertaining to read, and thought-provoking. Once you set it down, it's likely you'll wonder how anyone can believe we're an "accident" of the Big Bang and evolution. :)
Get 'em both! Feb 12, 2002
Note: This review refers to an additional book, "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" by the same author that I consider a "companion" to this one.
In both these books the authors take us into the world of medicine as seen through spiritual eyes. The parallels between our own bodies and the Body of Christ are fascinating to say the least. Read, for example, how when one area of our physical body is injured an urgent call goes out and hundreds of thousands of cells respond by plugging the holes in the walls, protecting the weak, cleansing the area and rebuilding itself. Read also how the body responds when there is rebellion loose within it. The list includes the workings of: (Fearfully and Wonderfully Made) cells, bones, skin, motion, (In His Image) image, blood, head, spirit and pain.
The reading style is very relaxed and everything is explained simply so that you don't need a degree in chemistry to understand what's going on. A special bonus is Dr. Brand's focus on his life's work with lepers which is interwoven throughout both books. If you've got an interest in how the physical body works and how it relates to biblical concepts, get these books - you won't be disappointed. -- Moza
