Item description for Body Symbolism in the Bible (Scripture) by Silvia Schroer, Thomas Staubli & Linda M. Maloney...

Overview
Many people with illnesses seek healing in religions and practices that are only weakly inculturated among us. Our understanding and use of such foreign wisdom is often just as superficial; but it is easily understood against the background of a centuries-long Christian tradition of interpreting the Bible in a way hostile to the body, particularly the female body. In Body Symbolism in the Bible, Schroer and Staubli offer a better understanding of this subject by exploring the symbolism of various body parts in the Bible. They reinterpret and thereby reclaim the notion of the body as a temple of God so that regard for the body can lead to respect for the human rights of women and men. Exploring the topic through the lenses of theological anthropology and biblical spirituality, their presentation will surely add clarity to our understanding and generate future discussion. Richly illustrated in full color.

With numerous color photographs of ancient artifacts  Apr 12, 2002
Body Symbolism In The Bible by biblical scholars and specialists Thomas Staubli and Silvia Schroer is a scholarly, college-level study of the body parts used as symbol and metaphor in the old testament. Enlivened with numerous color photographs of ancient artifacts, individual chapters cover theological anthropology, with various sections focusing on specific body parts and their recurring Biblical mention, including feet, eyes, ears, heart, throat, and more. A fascinating and exhaustively researched study, Body Symbolism In The Bible is a strongly recommended addition to academic Biblical Studies supplemental reading lists and reference collections.
