Western culture sends some strange messages about bodies, especially women’s bodies. They are to be thin but not skinny, toned but never sweaty, tanned but UV-protected, sexy but devoid of any signs of pregnancy. To make matters worse, as Ruth McGinnis points out in an article for TODAY’S CHRISTIAN WOMAN, our media role models employ armies of stylists to help them look perfect at all times. No wonder we’re tempted to look in the mirror and say, “Yuck!”
What does the Bible say about our bodies? How can we gain a godly perspective on beauty? Most important, how does our physical health relate to spiritual health? These are the questions we’ll explore in this study.
