Editorial Reviews

Review

"A powerful book ... Brings Pearcey's unique and uniquely-helpful voice to crucial issues."
    --Tim Challies, Challies.com
 
"Important ... Passionate ... Brilliant. Like no other book I've read, 
Love Thy Body draws out and exposes the faulty worldview upon which abortion, euthanasia, the hookup culture, gay marriage, and transgenderism rest. 
    --Louis Markos, Reformation21
 
"Timely ... Well researched ... Reading 
Love Thy Body was a sort of Matrix moment for me which opened my eyes to see what's going on in our world in a new light. It is an essential tool for understanding and engaging with our culture's views on humanity and morality."
    --Tim Arndt, Apologetics315
 
"Pearcey's analysis shines ... She turns the tables by showing that it is secularists who reject the physical world and the body. How? By exalting consciousness or feelings above the body. They want to choose their identity, no matter how much it conflicts with physical reality."
    --Richard Weikart, The Stream
 
"Takes us back to see the bigger picture ... A very practical book that reminds us of the importance of ideas, and how bad ideas can harm us so very much. But the book is one of hope as well. It not only demolishes faulty worldview thinking, but it points the way forward."
    --Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch

"Unique ... Puts its finger squarely on the problem ... Pearcey's central thesis is that the core of our differences over sexual matters stem from an unspoken, radically opposed anthropology--that is, a deep-seated disagreement over what makes a person a person."
    --Jimmy Young, The Gospel Coalition

"
Love Thy Body is riveting, challenging, educational, a shot to the heart, a challenge for the mind, and bold push for the feet. It will spark controversy."
    --David Steele, Servants of Grace

"With clarity and compassion ... shines much-needed light on the most pressing category of confusing ideologies today, the sexual ones. Think of it as a training guide for comprehensive, clear thinking about the biological and sexual deconstructivist movements of our day."
    --Terrell Clemmons, Cross Examined.org
 
"A former agnostic, Pearcey looks at what she calls the 'dehumanizing impact' of secularist views of the body, biology, and sexuality, making a case for how Christianity teaches a holistic view of each."
    --Publisher's Weekly Preview

Nancy Pearcey was one of the hippies who stumbled across Francis Schaeffer's ministry L'Abri in Switzerland in the early 1970s and was surprised to discover that there are actually good reasons and arguments supporting Christianity. She gave up her agnosticism and ever since has been writing about Christianity as a worldview that applies to every area of life.

Pearcey is best known for her book Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity, which was a 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner. She co-authored Now Shall We Live? (with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson), which was a 2000 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner. Her latest book is Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality.

Pearcey has been heralded as "America's pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual" in The Economist). She earned an MA from Covenant Theological Seminary and pursued further graduate work in History of Philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto. Currently she is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University, as well as a fellow of the Discovery Institute and editor-at-large of The Pearcey Report. As founding editor of the radio program BreakPoint, she also coauthored a monthly column with Chuck Colson in Christianity Today.

Pearcey has contributed to several books and published more than a hundred articles. She has spoken in the US Capitol and the White House; at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, Dartmouth, and USC; to actors in Hollywood and artists in New York City; on NPR and C-SPAN. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, and Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes.
