Fearfully and Wonderfully Made is told from the perspective of the pioneering researcher, world-renowned hand surgeon and leprosy specialist, Dr. Paul Brand and is co-authored by Philip Yancey.
I wrote about how we used this book in a couple of different posts but this one will give you an idea of the unusual nature of this book.
The book is scheduled as a health option anywhere between Year 7 and 11 in the Ambleside Online curriculum. I’ve read it aloud to my 14 year old son while his 9 year old sister listened in and I did some editing on the run as it does have some mature themes. It’s probably best as a read aloud for that reason, but also because it presents some wonderful opportunities for discussion.
It’s a unique book in many respects as it explores the design and intricacies of the human body, its patterns and unity, and what happens when parts of the body malfunction, then and provides insights into the Body of Christ, the Church.
I have a spare copy of this book to give away to someone who will be at the Mum Heart Conference in Newcastle in June. For a chance to win this excellent book, check out my original ‘Giveaways in the Merry Month of May’ post and leave a comment here and/or on my Facebook page.
