In this Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club recap episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri in a lively and wide-ranging discussion of John Kleinig’s Wonderfully Made: A Protestant Theology of the Body.
What kinds of things can go amiss in our lives when we have an improper or incomplete theological understanding of the body? How does a solidly biblical theology of the body help us better think through what it means to be a human being—and a woman of God? And where do we go from there?
Touching on issues including chastity, birth control, marriage and singleness, Christian friendship, virtual church, sacramental worship, life after death, and more, this conversation will challenge and inspire you to a new and deeper gratitude for God’s gift of embodied life.
Listen till the end to hear an announcement of the next Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club pick: Edna Hong’s Bright Valley of Love, which you can find on Amazon.com in paperback, audiobook, and e-book.
