Summary

Are transgender people discovering their authentic self? Is the hookup culture really liberating? Does abortion lead to equality for women? Does homosexuality contradict our biological sex?

In Love Thy Body, best-selling and award-winning author Nancy Pearcey takes on the hard questions about life and sexuality. She offers a respectful but riveting exposé of the secular worldview that lies behind trendy slogans and political talking points. A former agnostic, Pearcey is a sensitive guide to the secular ideas that shape current debates. She empowers listeners to intelligently and compassionately engage today's most controversial moral and social challenges.

In a surprise shattering of stereotypes, Pearcey demonstrates that while secularism promises much, in reality it delivers little. She turns the tables on stereotypes that portray Christianity as harsh and bigoted, and invites a fresh look at its holistic, life-affirming principles: It is a worldview that matches the real world and fits with human experience.

All along, Pearcey keeps listeners entranced with gripping stories of real people wrestling with hard questions in their own lives - sharing their pain, their struggles, and their triumphs.

Audio was choppy

The content of this book was great. my complaint is how the audio was setup. Each paragraph or point was a chapter so the book had 180 chapters. It made it difficult to navigate or know how much longer the real chapters had left.

Must read!

This was so eye opening and sometimes scary. It is a helpful tool to becoming an ambassador of change in a hurting and confused world. Highly recommended

Clarifying Cultural Views on Sexuality

What made the experience of listening to Love Thy Body the most enjoyable?

The author lays a clear foundation that explains how our Western culture has gotten into the mess we are in. Explaining the split of truth into two separate domains - the fact/value split - is extremely helpful in understanding how our culture has arrived at where it is at today.

What did you like best about this story?

What I liked best was the author's way of opening my eyes to the reality of our cultural views (especially held by young people) and how in spite of extensive science refuting cultural choices and numerous studies pointing out the harm of these choices, choices are made according to worldviews - not scientific facts.

Have you listened to any of Ann Richardson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not that I am aware of.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many - as I was very surprised at the statistics of what is happening in the younger hook-up generation and their lack of awareness at long term consequences.

Any additional comments?

This, to me, is one of the type books that I think is best "read" first in audible format. Then, a reread in both audible and visual format is helpful as it is so rich in information.

very helpful for the hard questions!

I found this book very helpful in understanding the biblical nature of the body and how as Christians we should be fighting to protect God's design of the human form.

Ideas matter!

This book explains how basic ideas form worldviews, and how worldviews influence our decision making. What do you stand for and why do you stand for that? That has a worldview implication.

The preformer's voice can sound robotic at times, but it was ok. Great book!

OUT OF THE PARK!!!

Nancy R. Pearcey hits this one OUT OF THE PARK. This gal, who started out with an attitude against Christianity as taught in her childhood, came in contact with Francis Schaeffer and her life changed. Many of us had similar experiences with Schaeffer and his writing. My two sons and I went to L'ABri and had similar experiences. I have never underlined a book more than this one. One taste of this gal's incredibly clear writing will lead you to grab her other volumes. Dr. Angus McDonald
