3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human body is a likeness of God, its design revealing insights into the church, the body of Christ . For bestselling author Philip Yancey, the late Dr. Paul Brand-the brilliant hand surgeon who devoted his life to the poorest people of India and Louisiana-was also a likeness of God, living the kind of Christian life that exemplified what God must have had in mind. In the Likeness of God combines the complete texts of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image -both Gold Medallion Award-winners which together have sold more than half a million copies-into one volume. Also included for the first time are eight beautiful litanies of praise on the human body by Dr. Brand. In Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, Dr. Paul Brand and bestselling writer Philip Yancey explore the wonder of the human body and uncover the eternal statements that God has made in the very structure of our bodies. Their remarkable journey through inner space-the world of cells, systems, and chemistry-points to a still deeper unseen reality of God's work in our lives. In His Image takes up where the first book leaves off. In five sections-Image, Blood, Head, Spirit, and Pain-the authors unlock the remarkable living lessons contained in our physical makeup

Pain : the gift nobody wants by Paul W Brand( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's hard to imagine pain as a "gift," but that's the compelling conclusion of Dr. Paul Brand, who has spent his remarkable life studying pain and its implications for medical treatment, overall health, and human happiness. From Paul Brand, M.D., and Philip Yancey, who have collaborated on the bestselling Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image, here is the inspiring story of Dr. Brand's fifty-year career as a healer. Born to missionary parents in India, Paul Brand grew up in exotic circumstances that helped to form his view of the key role pain plays in human health. We follow Dr. Brand from his early years in India, where physical pain is expected and tolerated much more so than in the West, through his almost accidental medical training in wartime England, and then on to his return to India, where his work as a hand surgeon led to astonishing breakthroughs in the treatment of leprosy. Most of the ravages of that disease, he found, trace back to the simple loss of pain sensation: without the protection of pain, leprosy patients were destroying themselves. Dr. Brand's career carried him next to America's famous Carville, Louisiana, leprosarium, where his pioneering work also provided fascinating insights into treatment for other more common ailments, such as diabetes. From a lifetime of discoveries about the sensation of pain, Dr. Brand has come to an unusual acceptance of pain as a necessary part of our lives and an important ally in medical treatment and true health. In this provocative book, Dr. Brand discusses eloquently the personal and societal implications of this country's inability to accept or deal with pain, and provides a strong case for each individual to learn how to make a friend of pain. "For good and for ill," he concludes, "the human species has among its priviledges the preeminence of pain ... feats of consciousness make it possible for suffering to loiter in the mind long after the body's need for it has passed. Yet they also give us the potential to attain an outlook that will change the very landscape of the pain experience. We can learn to cope, and even to triumph."

Faith seeking understanding : essays in memory of Paul Brand and Ralph D. Winter by David Marshall( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does the Christian faith help us see into the true nature of life more clearly? Why do people suffer? Where do we come from? What does Jesus have to say to a changing world? What can we learn from great mission pioneers about seeking truth at the cutting edges of human knowledge? Faith Seeking Understanding explores such questions. Notable Christian thinkers such as Philip Yancey, Alvin Plantinga, Rodney Stark, Allan Chapman, Don Richardson, Yuan Zhiming, and more, share powerful insights that help answer the deepest questions people face in the twenty-first century from the perspective of Christian faith. Inspired by the lives and accomplishments of Ralph D. Winter and Paul Brand, this book seeks to apply the curious, open-minded, and compassionate spirit these Christian leaders exhibited to key contemporary questions in science, history, philosophy, theology, and comparative religion. The reader will gain a fresh appreciation for the intellectual challenges of the Christian faith, and some of most fascinating and sometimes controversial ways in which those challenges are being met."--Publisher's description
