German theologian Elisabeth Moltmann-Wendel presents a rousing and rounded affirmation in this book of the flesh, the senses, and wholeness. She notes: "A reorientation of Christianity must begin with a rediscovery of the body and its energies." Moltmann-Wendel creatively interprets New Testament accounts of the healing ministry of Jesus and challenges believers to abandon views that espouse denying and despising the body. From a feminist perspective she writes cogently about the value of touching, the need for physical expression in worship, and the essential connection between eros and cosmos. In the final chapter, Moltmann-Wendel delineates a theology of the body stemming from the Incarnation. I Am My Body is a liberating and life-giving work.
